Jon Mroz Joins Marquette Soccer Staff
Jan. 27, 2016
“He’s not only a great coach, but a fantastic teacher,” said head coach Louis Bennett. “Jon is passionate about the game and, when it comes to teaching, he’s an innovator. He does a lot in the community and is well respected everywhere he has been. We’re excited about adding him and his expertise to our staff.”
A soccer fixture in the Milwaukee area, Mroz brings 30 years of coaching experience to the Golden Eagles program. He replaces Nick Vorberg, who transitions over to the women’s staff full-time after splitting time with both programs the past three seasons.
Mroz won three state championships as a player at Marquette University High School from 1984-86 before embarking on an illustrious four-year playing career at UW-Milwaukee, where he still owns the single-season record for shutouts (10 – 1990) as a goalkeeper.
Mroz went on to play professionally, serving stints with the Milwaukee Wave and Rampage in the early-1990s before getting into the coaching ranks.
Most recently, Mroz was the boys varsity head coach at Brookfield Central High School, where guided the Lancers for nearly 20 seasons. Since 2011, he has guided the U-14 boys blue squad and is the director of goalkeeping with the Bavarian Soccer Club – roles he continues to serve.
Mroz currently holds his USSF “D” License and NSCAA Goalkeeper Diploma.
He and his wife Jennifer have three sons, Max, James and Cosimo, and they currently reside in Wauwatosa.
