Greg Henschel was named the new women's soccer coach at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, on January 24, 2012.
Henschel came to Milwaukee from UW-Whitewater, where he led both the men's and women's programs to Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference titles and NCAA Tournament berths in 2011.
He had been in charge of both the men's and women's programs at Whitewater since 1999, leading the two programs to a combined 290 victories and 11 NCAA Tournament berths.
"I am honored to join the Milwaukee Panther family," Henschel said. "I would like to thank the UWM administration for providing me the opportunity to continue the proud tradition of Panther women's soccer. I look forward to working hard to continue building on the tremendous legacy of success Mike Moynihan and David Nikolic have left behind."
Henschel capped his tenure as the Warhawk women's coach with a record-setting season in 2011. The team set school records for wins (14) and winning percentage (.705) as he was named the WIAC Coach of the Year. His squad advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in school history, reaching the Sweet 16. The Warhawk women also won a share of the 2010 WIAC title and Henschel collected 126 victories while in charge of the women's program.
On the men's side, Henschel tallied 164 wins and led the Warhawks to 10 NCAA Tournament berths. His squads have reached the Sweet 16 of the tournament four times. The Warhawks have also won the WIAC title each of the last three years - the first three years the league has sponsored a men's soccer championship - and he is a two-time WIAC Coach of the Year honoree.
Despite the WIAC sponsoring men's soccer since just 2009, Henschel had 17 all-conference honorees in that time. All told, 46 players earned all-league honors in his tenure, including four player of the year award winners. Henschel's duties at Whitewater also including serving as the Outdoor Facilities Coordinator for the school's $4 million track and soccer complex, which was initiated and designed during his tenure at the school.
Henschel's background includes a pair of assistant coaching stints at UW-Oshkosh and a season with Thomas College (Georgia) in 1998.
He is a graduate of UW-Oshkosh, where he played four seasons of collegiate soccer. Upon graduation, he held school records for goals in a single season, goals for a career and total points. His Titan teams made the NCAA Tournament three times, including a Division III Final Four berth in 1994. Henschel also played professionally with the Rockford (Ill.) Raptors of the A-League and the Tallahassee (Fla.) Scorpions of the Eastern Indoor Soccer League.
Henschel and his wife Jean have two daughters--Eliana, 6, and Adilyn, 3.
