Samantha Thomsit

Samantha Thomsit was named the Spring Hill College (SHC) women’s soccer head coach on January 5, 2022 following four seasons as assistant coach on the University of South Alabama (USA) women’s soccer team under head coach Richard Moodie where she helped lead the Jaguars to the NCAA Tournament with a 12-5-3 record and their third consecutive Sun Belt Conference (SBC) title.

While at USA, Thomsit assisted in player development, starting with the goalkeepers in the beginning of the 2020 season and moving into field player supervision. She was essential in player development at USA while fostering player growth in individual technical training sessions. Her efforts succeeded with eight players winning seasonal honors, 26 placements as all-conference selections, and numerous SBC Offensive and Defensive Player of the Week awards.

The USA defense was one of the league’s best during the 2018 conference season as the Jags permitted just six goals in 10 games to rank second in the league in goals allowed and goals against average (0.57).

Thomsit spent the three years before joining USA at Burlingame Soccer Club as the U17 and U10 women’s soccer head coach where in three years she also served as the club’s United States Development Academy Travel Coordinator in addition to her head coaching duties. She coordinated all travel for USDA tournaments, directed the Path to College Program and coordinated girls’ camps among other duties.

Thomsit also spent a year at Saint Cecilia’s Private Catholic School as a K-8 physical education teacher and worked the summer of 2015 at the Headfirst Atlanta Braves Camp where her responsibilities included stadium tours and organizing player meet-and-greets.

In 2014, Thomsit joined the staff at the JSSL/Arsenal Soccer School in Singapore, managing the U6, U10 and U15 teams.

After graduating from Carson-Newman University in 2013 with a degree in physical education, Thomsit served as the U18 head coach for Knoxville Soccer Academy and the head coach for Cherokee High School in Rogersville, Tenn.

As a player, Thomsit started 15 times as a freshman on a team that went 20-3-1, won the South Atlantic Conference regular season and tournament championships, and advanced to the quarterfinals in the NCAA Tournament. She suffered a season-ending injury early in her sophomore season, but started all 16 games as a senior and recorded one point.

A native of Trowbridge, England, Thomsit is an FA Level 1 and USSF D licensed coach and has her NSCAA Level 2 Goalkeeping Diploma. She and her husband, Walker Bullington, live in Mobile.
