Hill College Men's Soccer

Head Coach Dejan "Milo" Milosevic


Dejan “Milo” Milosevic returns to Hill College for his first year as the Head Coach of the Men’s Soccer program.

Milosevic comes to Hill College from Louisiana State University, Shreveport (LSUS), where he was the head women’s soccer coach. Prior to that, he was the associate head men’s coach at Texas Wesleyan University (TWU). He also served as an assistant coach at Hill College under Paul Davenport, Head Coach of the Women’s Soccer program, helping the women’s soccer team win two regional championships and make an appearance in the district finals.

While at TWU, Milosevic helped the Rams improve their record from 4-14 in his first year to 11-5-2 in his last year. After moving to LSUS as the head women’s coach, he took the Pilots from a losing season of 6-8-2 to a winning season of 9-5-3 while maintaining an overall 3.42 team GPA.

During his soccer career at Texas Wesleyan University, he was selected twice for the All-Red River Athletic Conference (RRAC) and was awarded the RRAC defensive player of the year as a junior. He also helped the team to its first National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) national tournament appearance and set the school’s single-season record for goals.

Prior to his career at Texas Wesleyan, he played for Arizona Western College, where he was named Most Valuable Player in the 2010 Region 1 finals. He then signed with the Dallas Sidekicks, where he played as goalkeeper. He later went on to represent Serbia, his home country, in the 2015 Indoor World Cup. He has also served as the director of coaching for the Sting Soccer Club, Dallas; the Fort Worth FC; the Dallas Texans Soccer Club; and the Texas Eagles FC, Midlothian.

Milosevic graduated from Texas Wesleyan University with a Bachelor of Science in liberal arts and a Master of Arts in education. He also holds a United States Soccer Federation (USSF) license C.

Milo and his wife, Elizabeth, have two children together, Lara and Luka.
