Dustin Stein joined the Panthers in June of 2018 after spending nearly five years as the head coach of Eastfield College, where he was the winningest coach in program history.
“Dustin brings both collegiate and junior college experience, which we'll need while turning this program around,” said head coach Randy Waldrum. “He understands my vision for the program, and is a tireless and committed coach.
While at Eastfield, his teams tallied 14 or more wins in each of his last three seasons, and boasted a record of 42-12-3 in that stretch. Eastfield was amongst the top 10 NJCAA programs in each of the last three seasons as Stein was named the 2015 NJCAA Region 5 Division 3 Coach of the Year and the Metro Athletic Conference Coach of the Year.
Stein coached two NJCAA All-Americans, two NJCAA Region 5 MVPs, 13 All-Conference first team honorees and 15 All-Conference second team honorees.
A certified athletic trainer, Stein joined the FC Dallas staff in 2012 as a member of its medical team. In 2016, he was promoted to associate head coach of the FCD Women, working alongside Ben Waldrum in the semi-professional women's soccer league.
"I am very excited to be joining the coaching staff here at Pitt," said Stein. "An opportunity to work alongside one of the all-time greats in Randy Waldrum, and coach in the ACC made this decision a no brainer. I am very thankful for the opportunity to represent the University of Pittsburgh and have a part in building an elite women's soccer program."
