Tina Estrada Inks Three-Year Extension Through 2026 season

SAN JOSE, Calif. - San José State's Director of Athletics Jeff Konya announced a three-year extension for women's soccer head coach Tina Estrada on Monday that runs through the 2026 season. Estrada led the Spartans to a Mountain West regular season and tournament championship in her first season as head coach and NCAA tournament appearance against Stanford.

"Tina did a great job leading our program in her first season as head coach," said Konya. "Her leadership developed these young women throughout the season and the team continued to improve, eventually capturing the Mountain West championship. I am thrilled that Tina signed this extension and look forward to even more success for the Spartans in the future."

Estrada came to San José State five years ago as an assistant coach and spent the previous two seasons (2020, '21) as associate head coach before taking the reins on April 8, 2022. Since her arrival, the Spartans have captured two Mountain West championships and made two NCAA tournament appearances (2018, '22).

"I'm extremely honored to receive this extension from Jeff Konya and San Jose State University," said Estrada. "Our program's success this past season was a reflection of the positive direction our student-athletes, coaches, and department are headed. Our staff is excited for the future of this program and motivated to make our university, fans, and alumni proud to be a Spartan."

Under Estrada's tutelage, senior Jada Wilson earned Mountain West Defensive Player of the Year and freshman goalkeeper Bente Pernot was named Mountain West Newcomer of the Year. Pernot went on to earn the Mountain West tournament's most valuable player, while Bella Flocchini, Sabrina Weinman and Tatiana Cunningham joined Pernot and Wilson on the All-Mountain West teams.
