Duquesne University's head women's soccer coach Al Alvine has selected David Gray as an assistant coach.

Gray comes to Duquesne after serving as the head girls soccer coach at Upper St. Clair High School for the past nine seasons.

During his time at Upper St. Clair High, Gray led the Panthers to an overall record of 126-48-11, including a 93-18-3 mark in section play, according to a Duquesne news release. USC was the 2011 WPIAL AAA champion and 2007 runner-up. The Panthers appeared in the WPIAL playoffs in all nine of Gray's seasons and qualified for the PIAA (state) playoffs four times.

Gray holds a United States Soccer Federation (USSF) National "A" License, a USSF National Goalkeeping Diploma and a National Soccer Coaches Association of America Goalkeeping Diploma.

"We are very excited to add Dave Gray to our coaching staff," Alvine said in the news release. "He's an excellent coach with a great background in training the goalkeeper position.

"While Dave's primary function will be as a goalkeeper coach, he'll be involved in all aspects of our program."

Gray lives in South Fayette Township with his wife, Rachel, and son, Nicholas.

Not that I've heard. Anyone else?

I found out that their new coach is Natasha Dirda. She has coached with Century United and Montour High School. She is a good coach. I took my "C" license coaching class with her a few years back. Good luck to her and the USC girls soccer team.
