Contact Coach Gulrajani
Jon Gulrajani was named an assistant coach at Milwaukee by head coach Greg Henschel in April.
Gulrajani (pronounced GULL-ra-jonny) was a volunteer assistant with the team in 2012, but was promoted after a national search. He replaces Kristen Weiss, who resigned last month to accept a similar position at Wisconsin.
"We are pleased to have Jon become a full-time member of our staff," Henschel said. "Last year in his role with our program he demonstrated tremendous passion and an excellent work ethic on behalf of Panther soccer. He brings great insight to our team, has a great eye for the game and is a great communicator."
Gulrajani came to Milwaukee from UW-Oshkosh, where he was on staff for one of the Titans' most successful seasons in 2011. UWO won a WIAC Tournament title in a shootout and advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. He worked primarily with the keepers, who lead the league with a 0.79 goals against average.
Four Oshkosh players earned all-league honors and one was named to the All-North Regional Team.
The 2011 campaign was also his last at Wauwatosa West High School in the Milwaukee area. He coached both the boys' and girls' teams, amassing more than 300 wins and 17 league titles in his tenure.
A Milwaukee-area native, Gulrajani played alongside Henschel at Brookfield East High School. Behind the duo, the Spartans were state runners-up in 1990 and ranked as high as No. 5 in the nation. East also advanced to the state semifinals in 1991.
Gulrajani graduated from UWM with a degree in communications and holds a National Goalkeeper license from the NSCAA and Certification from the LMA School of Football Management.
Gulrajani and his wife Linda reside in Wauwatosa with their two sons, Isaiah and Will.
