Coaching Staff

Cam Omsberg
Assistant Coach

Cam Omsberg enters his fourth season as the assistant coach of the Northeastern men's soccer team during 2019, having arrived at Northeastern in February 2016. He holds multiple coaching licenses, including United Soccer Coaches (formerly NSCAA) National, Advanced, and Premier diplomas, as well as United States Soccer Federation (USSF) C, D, and E licenses.

Prior to joining the staff at Northeastern, Omsberg served three seasons as the top assistant coach of the Bates men's soccer team, with whom he assisted in all aspects of the program’s day-to-day coaching operations, weighing in heavily on recruiting and player development. Omsberg played a key role in landing the Bobcats their first-ever Division I transfer in addition to recruiting the program’s first NSCAA High School All-American. With a focus in positional training and one-on-one video analyses, he strengthened Bates’ underclassmen, aiding in the development of the program's first All-NESCAC sophomore since 2008, Peabo Knoth (2015 All-NESCAC Second Team).

Driven by motivating student-athletes to maximize their academic achievement, Omsberg helped Bates receive three NSCAA Team Academic Awards, one during each year that he was an assistant. From 2013 to 2015, he tutored 19 student-athletes to garner NESCAC All-Academic recognition, in addition to mentoring three NSCAA Academic All-Region selections.
 
Omsberg’s training sessions at Bates had an immediate effect on the Bobcats’ on-field success. During its 2015 campaign, he helped Bates achieve its best season during more than a decade, improving by three victories and snapping winless droughts against conference foes Williams (first time since 1979) and Hamilton (first time ever). With Omsberg’s assistance in the backfield, the Bobcats’ defenders posted seven shutouts and conceded 18 goals – the fewest the program had witnessed across 13 seasons.
 
A starting center back and two-year captain at Lehigh, Omsberg was named a 2012 Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award finalist for his commitment to athletic and academic excellence. During 2011, he was a standout member of the Mountain Hawks’ defending unit that set Patriot League records in fewest goals conceded (eight), most shutouts (11), and lowest goals against average (0.41). Omsberg’s play netted him selections to both the 2011 All-Patriot League Second Team and the 2011 All-Patriot League Tournament Team.
 
At the amateur level, Omsberg played five seasons in the Professional Development League (PDL): four with GPS Portland Phoenix (2010-12, 2014) and one with Seacoast United (2015). He was a member of two Northeast Division championship teams (2012, 2015) and was named to the 2012 Jim Dedeus All-Star XI as one of the top 11 players in the Northeast Division. Following the 2015 season, Omsberg returned to GPS Portland in the role of assistant coach.
 
Omsberg served as a coach with GPS Maine, where he directed the Under-16, U-17, and U-18 boys' teams for three years and the U-20 men’s squad for one year. He has also head coached the Maine Olympic Development Program (ODP) 1999 Boys program. Omsberg is currently an assistant coach with the GPS Massachusetts U-17 NPL team and is the college placement coordinator for the GPS Massachusetts boys' and girls' teams.


Stefan Defregger
Assistant Coach

Stefan Defregger enters his second season as the assistant coach of the Northeastern men’s soccer team during 2019, having joined the Huskies’ staff during the summer of 2018. A former Dartmouth midfielder under then-assistant coach Chris Gbandi, Defregger has risen quickly through the collegiate coaching ranks after competing professionally for three seasons on the United Soccer League (USL) circuit.
 
Before arriving at Northeastern, Defregger was the assistant coach of the Rochester men’s soccer team that was named the 2017 University Athletic Association (UAA) Coaching Staff of the Year. Specializing in the development of the Yellowjackets’ attacking front, he helped guide Rochester’s offense to 41 goals, yielding 14 victories, a third-place UAA finish and the program’s second Division III quarterfinal appearance.
 
Prior to coaching on the collegiate scene, Defregger logged three professional seasons as a USL midfielder, suiting up for the Wilmington Hammerheads (2015, 2016) and the Rochester Rhinos (2017). The two-time USL Team of the Week selection netted four goals and tallied four assists during his career, scoring the match-winning goal (113th minute) that lifted Rochester past Charlotte during the 2017 Eastern Conference quarterfinals.
 
While competing at the pro ranks, Defregger was an active coach within his clubs’ developmental programs. He taught strength training and sports psychology to more than 40 youth players at Wilmington Hammerheads Sports Science during 2016 before co-leading the Rochester Rhinos Under-12 girls’ squad to the 2017 New York state cup championship.
 
Defregger graduated from Dartmouth in 2015 with his bachelor’s degree in sociology modified with economics, completing a semester abroad in Berlin, Germany. A four-year outside back for the Big Green, he helped lead the Dartmouth men’s soccer team to Ivy League championships during 2011 and 2014, receiving the team's 2013 Most Improved Player award and garnering 2014 All-Ivy League First Team honors.
