Lewis to coach U of M Bisons women’s soccer team

  • Print

WINNIPEG--The University of Manitoba  has named Chris Lewis as interim head coach following the departure of Walter McKee, who resigned last week to attend to his health.

Lewis, 45, becomes only the second head coach in the history of the U of M’s women’s soccer program – founded as a club team by McKee a decade ago.

In a statement, Lewis said he was "excited about the opportunity" and looking forward to "a successful season ahead."

He comes to the Bisons with over 20 years of experience in athletics, working with the Manitoba Soccer Association, the National Sport Centre – Manitoba, and the Canadian Soccer Association. Most recently, he was the head coach of the South End United Senior Women’s Soccer Club, leading them to provincial titles in 2008 and 2009.

A former Bisons athlete himself, Lewis once suited up for Manchester City F.C.’s reserve team in Barclays League Division 2.
