There will be another Masur coaching soccer at St. John’s University this fall.
Head coach Ian Stone on Wednesday announced the promotion of Samantha Masur to assistant coach on Wednesday afternoon.
Masur is the daughter of Red Storm men’s head coach Dr. Dave Masur.
“Everyone associated with our program is very excited that Sam will become our full-time assistant coach,” Stone said in a statement. “She has progressed from being a student-athlete, to being an outstanding team captain, to taking on the volunteer coach position, to excelling as our director of operations and now this position.”
Masur served as director of women’s soccer operations following a playing career with the Johnnies.
As the director of operations, Masur helped guide the fall 2021 team to a 13-7-3 record and a 6-3-1 mark in conference play. The Red Storm reached the Big East Tournament championship for the first time since the 1994 campaign and first-ever NCAA Division Tournament Round of 16 appearance.
The Johnnies made the most of their trip to the postseason, as they took down Brown 1-0 on the Bears’ home pitch. St. John’s followed the match with a stunning takedown of Samford, advancing on penalty kicks, to reach the NCAA Tournament Round of 16.
A two-year captain of the St. John’s team, Masur appeared in 53 total matches, while making the starting 11 on 38 occasions.
The Monclair, N.J., native saw her best offensive output come during her senior campaign, as the 5-7 midfielder capped off her Red Storm career with a season-high two goals and four points. She netted her first career goal by way of a game-winner in the Johnnies victory over Syracuse on Sept. 12, 2019.
Masur graduated from St. John’s in 2019 with a 3.63 GPA and a bachelor’s degree in sport management.
