ASSISTANT COACH LEE KOUADIO-TOBEY
Lee Kouadio-Tobey joined the UCA Men's Soccer coaching staff in March of 2016, and is in his first year with the Bears.
Kouadio-Tobey boasts a level of familiarity with Bears head Coach Ross Duncan, as he played under Duncan during a spectacular collegiate career at the University of Vermont. His freshman campaign in 2005 saw him earn America East Striker of the Year and Rookie of the Year honors thanks to a conference-high nine goals. He also took home NSCAA All-Northeast Regional honors in 2005.
The Ivory Coast native continued to provide consistent offense for the Catamounts after his freshman year, ranking in the top three on the team in points and goals over his final three seasons. The Catamounts compiled a winning record in all four of Kouadio's seasons in Burlington, while making the America East Tournament finals twice and an appearance in the second round of the NCAA Tournament in 2007. He was named to the America East All-Championship Team in 2008.
Kouadio-Tobey played professionally for the Pittsburgh Riverhounds of the USL and Apollon Kalamarias FC in Greece's first tier.
Since 2010, Kouadio has been coaching with the MLS's Philadelphia Union. He helped with a number of squads, including the U14, U16, and U18 teams.
