MITCHELL — Dakota Wesleyan University has found the next head coach for its women's soccer program. Nicolas Reinhard will be the Tigers' next head women's soccer coach, becoming the fourth head women's soccer coach since the program began in 2005.

Reinhard, a native of Germany, has spent the previous three years at Trevecca Nazarene University in Nashville, Tennessee, where he played soccer and served as the top assistant coach for three seasons.

"Coach Reinhard is going to be a spectacular fit for our women's soccer program. He has a strong background and foundation as a coach and player that will resonate well with leading this team to new heights," DWU athletic director Jon Hart said.

Before playing collegiately, Reinhard played on the German Bundesliga U19 team. Reinhard was a three-time All-Great Midwest Athletic Conference selection and received the 2018 Google Cloud NCAA Division II Academic All-District honor.

"I am very excited to be named the next head women's soccer coach at Dakota Wesleyan University," Reinhard said. "The opportunity to put my own stamp on the program by leading young student-athletes through an experience that goes far beyond the athletic success is a privilege and honor that I will not take for granted."


Reinhard will begin his coaching role at DWU on June 6.
