Dennis Muzahuzi

Dennis Muzahuzi is a first-year Graduate Assistant Coach for the Men's Soccer Team. Muzahuzi is originally from Wairaka village, a small community of about 150 households and a population of nearly 7000 people located in eastern Uganda (East Africa). Muzahuzi has lived in the USA for over seven years now, and he considers Kalamazoo, Michigan as his home away from home, being that it was his first residence for six years when he migrated to the US.


However, Muzahuzi also worked and lived in Washington DC, Arlington, Virginia, Grand Rapids, Michigan, and previously in Atlanta, Georgia , where he met and worked with Coach Luis Alexander. He and Coach Alexander both coached at Henry Grady High School, where Muzahuzi coached the Junior Varsity Girls team but also filled in as the Assistant Coach for the Varsity Girls team alongside Coach Alexander, who was the head coach. When Coach Alexander accepted the coaching position here at the W, he extended the invitation for Muzahuzi to join him. Muzahuzi considers this offer as a great opportunity because he not only wants to improve his soccer coaching career, but he also gets to work with Coach Alexander.


Muzahuzi explained that he and Coach Alexander had a good working relationship while working in Atlanta. Muzahuzi brings a lot of passion for the sport and his experience working with youth teams in Uganda, Michigan, and recently at Inter Atlanta Academy and Grady High School, respectively. About Muzahuzi playing days, he always looks back to how soccer scholarships helped him to afford high school tuition in Uganda. He continued to play university club soccer at Africa University in Zimbabwe as well as Western Michigan University.


Muzahuzi believes one never stops learning as long as they perceive that it helps to improve their knowledge in a particular field. Muzahuzi is here to improve on his soccer coaching skills as well as support Coach Alexander in advancing the Men's Soccer Program. Muzahuzi also looks forward to attaining a teaching degree when it is all said and done! He believes this degree will be a great addition to his BSc, in Psychology and MA, in Intern'l Devt Administration.
