A Lucas County native, Smith joins Pacesetter from Royal Oak FC in Detroit where he coached six teams and further served as the club’s Director of College Placement. In addition to his role with PSC, Smith currently serves as an assistant coach at Lourdes University with their men's program and is the associate head coach of Toledo Villa, a semi-professional club currently competing in USL League Two.
Prior to his current coaching roles, Smith previously coached at two NCAA Division II programs, serving as an assistant to both Chaminade University and University of Bridgeport, and has also coached for soccer clubs in Hawaii, California, Connecticut, and Michigan. As a club coach, Smith has helped place numerous athletes into college programs across the nation and has also helped place two players into youth national teams.
As a player, Smith was a two-time captain and 1st Team All-Conference player competing at the NCAA division II level and played in the Premier Development League (now USL League Two) with the Indiana Invaders. As a youth player, Nick played for Pacesetter and is an Anthony Wayne HS alum and graduated from University of Bridgeport and later graduated with a J.D. degree from the University of California-Hastings College of the Law (’16).
Nick will be tasked with overseeing the development of our 2011 through 2008 Boys and Girls teams at Pacesetter, and we are so very excited to add him to our staff!
This Friday, Toledo Villa will be playing Grand Rapids in their USL 2 game 6pm at Paul Hotmer Field on the University of Toledo campus. The owners of Toledo Villa FC have offered to give all the gate receipts for the game to the Jackson Weis Youth Athletic Achievement Fund.
