Gu Names Thorarinsson Men’s Soccer Coach

Einar Thorarinsson, head coach at Whitworth College the past nine years, has been hired as the first full-time men’s soccer coach at Gonzaga, the university announced Friday.

Jeff Heimbigner has coached GU on a part-time basis for five years. GU was 2-13-1 last fall.

Under Thorarinsson, Whitworth has posted a 123-50-13 record and has been ranked in the NAIA national poll five of his nine seasons. The Pirates have won five conference titles.

“Einar comes to Gonzaga as the most highly recommended coach I have hired,” athletic director Dan Fitzgerald said.
