Lumberjacks name new women’s soccer coach


Humboldt State Athletics

Grant Landy has been named the new HSU women’s soccer head coach after serving as the interim head coach since March.  

The long-time coach brings 24 years experience to the position, having coached at both the NCAA Division II and NAIA levels.

Prior to Humboldt, Landy was the head coach at Concordia University in Oregon, where he led the Cavaliers to a combined 389-86-36 (.796) record during his 23-year tenure.  

During his time in the NAIA, Landy’s teams captured 17 conference championships in 18 seasons, while claiming three NAIA Region I titles and making 14 consecutive trips to the NAIA National Tournament.  

Landry and Concordia played for the national title on four occasions.

Landy replaces popular coach Paul Karver, who was somewhat controversially reassigned within the HSU athletic department earlier this year.

No reason was given for the decision.

“I want to thank President Tom Jackson, Chief of Staff Sherie Gordon, Athletic Director Jane Teixeira and the search committee for giving me the opportunity to join the Lumberjack family as head coach of the women’s soccer program,” Landy said in a press release announcing the decision on Wednesday. “It was ultimately their vision for the future of the athletic department that inspired me to accept this next challenge in my professional career.

“Although I haven’t been able to work face-to-face with our returning players since coming on board in March as the interim, I have been pleased with the focus and motivation of this team through our interactions. I am excited for our new players to join us and really look forward to getting out on the field with everyone when the time is right.”

The Jacks were 4-11-2 last season.

The 2020 season has been suspended due to COVID-19.
