Manbi Nyepon Joins Men's Soccer Staff
Assistant will work with GW goalkeepers
Nyepon, who comes to the Colonials after a season as volunteer assistant at American, will work primarily with the goalkeepers.
"I was immediately impressed with his desire and passion to work with student-athletes on a daily basis and his commitment to academics, community service and the personal growth of each individual student-athlete," Jones said. "On the field, his work ethic and passion will have an immediate impact on the players who can learn from his coaching knowledge and experience. Off the field, they have a mentor and role model who will continue to drive each player to achieve his potential in all areas of the program."
In Nyepon’s lone season at American, the Eagles topped the Patriot League regular season standings before falling in penalty kicks in the tournament final. His keepers combined to cede just 1.20 goals per game, including six shutouts. In addition, starter Lucas Belanger garnered third-team all-conference honors.
"I am very excited to be joining the George Washington University men's soccer coaching staff," Nyepon said. "The program has a lot of exciting things going on, and I'm ready to help in any way possible."
Before his move to the nation’s capital, Nyepon spent two seasons on staff at his alma mater Greensboro College in North Carolina. The Pride advanced to the USA South Athletic Conference final both years.
In net at Greensboro College, Nyepon made the NSCAA All-Region second team twice. As a senior, he helped the Pride to a conference title and berth in the NCAA Division III Tournament. He recorded nine shutouts over his two seasons in uniform.
Nyepon, a native of West Africa, graduated from Greensboro’s Page High School before starting his college career at Cape Fear Community College in Wilmington, N.C.
