Coach biographies

Andy Kohel became the seventh head coach in the history of Cobber men's soccer in the spring of 2021.

Kohel brings a wealth of collegiate coaching and playing experience to the Concordia men's soccer team.

Before coming to Concordia, Kohel was the head coach for Johnson & Wales for three years before the school ended all athletic programs in the summer of 2020. Before his stint at Johnson & Wales, Kohel was the top assistant coach for Colorado College – one of the premiere programs in Division III.

During his three year at Colorado College, Kohel was responsible for planning training sessions, coaching defenders, video analysis, scouting, player identification and recruiting and coordinating on-campus visits. He helped the Tigers fashion a 41-10-9 record over his three years and had several players earn Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference honors as well as national awards from the United Soccer Coaches.

Kohel started his coaching career at Wis.-Oshkosh – where he also starred as a player. Kohel was an assistant coach for Oshkosh for four seasons and helped the team record a 48-18-11 record. During his four years, the Titans won the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference championship in 2014 and earned a berth in the NCAA Tournament in 2013.       

Kohel grew up in Racine, Wis. and went to Racine Horlick High School. He moved on to Wis.-Oshkosh where he was a 4-year starter as a defender for the Titans. During his playing days, Kohel helped Oshkosh compile a 52-16-11 overall record. In his senior season the Titans went 20-1-3 and advanced to the semifinals of the NCAA Tournament.

George Gauld is in his first season as assistant coach with the Cobber women's soccer team. Gauld brings a deep background in soccer and coaching to the Concordia staff. He is currently the head coach for the West Fargo High School girls' team which competes in the spring. He has served in that role for over five years.

Gauld graduated from the University of Jamestown with a bachelor’s degree in Physical Education and Emphasis in Coaching.
