Greg DeVito
Head Coach

Following two seasons as an assistant coach in the program, Greg DeVito took over as only the fifth head coach in program history in 2007.

As the fifth head coach in the program's 53-year history, Greg DeVito has compiled an overall record of 100-32-16 in seven seasons, including 46-6-8 in Little East Conference play.

Under DeVito -- the 2013 LEC Coach-of-the-Year -- Eastern has averaged 14.3 wins per season, captured five LEC playoff titles and won or shared five LEC regular-season championships. His teams have never lost more than one LEC regular-season match in a season.

In seven years, DeVito’s teams have featured one NSCAA All-America, two NSCAA Scholar All-Americas, 16 NSCAA All-Region picks, seven NSCAA Scholar All-Regions, seven LEC Players-of-the-Year, 25 LEC All-Academic recipients, and 42 All-LEC selections.

In 2013, the Warriors went 12-4-4 and made their seventh straight post-season tournament appearance — sixth in the NCAA — by virtue of a Little East Conference tournament championship victory over UMass Dartmouth.

In 2013, Eastern was awarded a Bronze Award by the NSCAA after being issued just six yellow cards all season and was also chosen as the winner of the National Marrow Donor Program/Be The Match Awareness Award. In 2012, Eastern was one of only six men’s teams in the country to be recognized with the NSCAA Team Ethics Award of Merit.

Eastern is the only public institution to be ranked regionally in every NSCAA New England poll each of the past six years. Beginning with the final poll of 2007, the Warriors have been mentioned in the NSCAA New England rankings every week, finishing at No. 9 in 2013 and being ranked as high as No. 4 Oct. 15 and gaining mention in the national rankings. In 2012, Eastern was ranked no lower than No. 5 from the first through tenth regional polls. The Warriors were ranked as high as second regionally and as high as a tie for 12th nationally in that span.

DeVito, who holds a USSF B License, has been coaching soccer on a variety of levels since 1993. Having coached at the premier level for the last 14 years, DeVito is currently coaching the FSA FC U-18 and U-16 boys. He has won five CJSA Open Cup championships in the last ten years, as well as advancing to the Region 1 semifinals in 2010 and winning a US Club regional championship.

Entering his tenth season with the coaching staff (the first two as an assistant coach), DeVito has a strong staff of assistants in Adam Phaiah, Matt Esposito and Carl Stensland -- all products of the Eastern soccer program — as well as goalkeeper coach Matt Westo
