Jeff Cook Adds Two Assistant Coaches To Men’s Soccer Staff

Penn State men’s soccer coach Jeff Cook, who was hired last month, added two assistant coaches to his new-look staff Monday. Tunde Ogunbiyi and Greg Dalby join the Nittany Lions from Drexel University and Davidson College, respectively.

Ogunbiyi, a goalkeeper coach, served as a Drexel assistant last season and has also worked with the Philadelphia Union’s youth academy teams. His professional career included several stints in the Danish first division, and he was also a member of the Nigerian Youth National squad.

Dalby won a Division I national championship as an assistant coach at midwestern powerhouse Notre Dame, where he also played as a student-athlete, in 2013. He then served as Davidson’s lead assistant coach for three years. Dalby’s professional career included spells in the Belgian Premier League and the MLS, and he represented the United States in the 2005 FIFA Youth World Cup.

“[Ogunbiyi and Dalby’s] combined experience as outstanding players at both the collegiate and professional levels, in addition to their coaching backgrounds made them ideal choices to join our coaching team,” Cook said in a release.

Cook and his now-complete staff inherit a young but promising team that posted a 5-10-2 record last season under former coach Bob Warming. The Nittany Lions begin a series of Spring exhibition games this Sunday, when they take on La Salle College and Seton Hall University in a double-header at Holuba Hall.
