Reigning NCAA champion UCLA hires USYNT scout Gina Brewer as assistant coach

UCLA women’s soccer head coach Margueritte Aozasa has announced the addition of Gina Brewer to her coaching staff as a full-time assistant.

Brewer was a volunteer assistant coach at Santa Clara in 2022, helping guide the Broncos to the NCAA second round. She was also on staff in 2021 as a video analyst for the NCAA semifinalist Broncos. Prior to her time at Santa Clara, she spent a year and a half as an assistant coach at Loyola Marymount. From 2011-19, she was the head coach at Hawaii Pacific University, where she led her team to 70 wins as the longest-tenured head coach in program history. Brewer also had coaching stints at the University of Hawai’i (2008-10) and Utah State (2006-07) and was a graduate assistant at the University of Idaho from 2003-05.

“We are incredibly excited to add Gina to our staff,” Aozasa said. “She brings an incredible work ethic and a willingness to go above and beyond for our student-athletes. We know she’s going to do all she can to help us keep our forward momentum, and we can’t wait for her to get started.”

Brewer played collegiately at the University of Washington from 1998-2001, helping lead the Huskies to a Pac-10 Championship and NCAA quarterfinal appearance in 2000. Her Husky teams played in the NCAA Tournament three times in her career.

A Seattle native, Brewer earned her Bachelor of Arts in Sociology with a minor in communications from the University of Washington. She also received a Master’s of Education in physical education and health from the University of Idaho.

Brewer is currently the Olympic Development Program “ODP” West Region Girls Technical Advisor, as well as a U.S. Soccer Coach Educator for the National B and C coaching licenses. She is also a U.S. Soccer Youth National Team Scout and currently holds her USSF “A” Coaching License.
