Player Profile

Associate Head Coach

Six Seasons

Alma Mater:
Cal State Northridge, 2006

Yossi Raz recently completed his sixth season as a member of the Cal State Northridge coaching staff, aiding head coach Terry Davila with all aspects of the game, and will begin his seventh season, and first as the associate head coach, on the sidelines in 2011. The Matadors have posted a record of 59-53-26 in his six seasons, including a Big West title and a trip to the round of 16 in the NCAA Tournament in 2005 and an appearance in the Big West Conference Postseason Tournament in 2009.

Raz joined the Matador staff in 2005 after completing one of the most storied four-year careers in CSUN men's soccer history. Raz earned All-Big West Conference First-Team honors each season, becoming the first player in league history to receive First-Team accolades all four years. The midfielder came out of the gates flying as a freshman, netting seven goals and two assists for 16 points in being named Big West Freshman of the Year. His career-best season came in 2002 when the sophomore led the team with 11 assists and 25 points, also equaling his goal total from his freshman campaign.

As a junior, Raz found the net five times and added seven assists for 17 points, while totaling three goals and a team-best eight assists for 14 points in his final season. Missing only one match in four years at Northridge, the midfielder collected 22 goals and 28 assists for 72 points. The 28 assists rank him fifth on the all-time career list. He is also eighth in points and third on the matches played list with 78.

Raz performed just as well off the field as he did on, receiving All-Big West Academic accolades each year he was eligible for the award. He was also named Big West Scholar-Athlete of the Year in 2002. Raz graduated from Northridge in 2006 with a Bachelor's in Business, and earned his Master's in Recreation and Tourism Management last May.
