Linda Moynihan Vance
The Green Bay Glory is excited to announce the appointment of Linda Moynihan Vance as Head Coach! Coach Vance has been connected to The Glory from the beginning as a season ticket holder in the inaugural season. As a member of the Green Bay community for 24 years, she has also been an active soccer coach. Most recently, Linda was a staff coach at FC Wisconsin North while serving as a part of the Glory Media team as a game day analyst during the 2021 season.
Coach Vance is the mother of four (two in college and two in high school) and recently married her long-time boyfriend, Bruce Halbmaier. Linda is the epitome of “keeping women in the game”. As a business leader and remote associate of TransUnion, based in Chicago, for 18 years, she has excelled in her business career while coaching, raising a family, finishing her Master’s degree, and volunteering in the community.
Coach Vance brings extensive expertise as both a player and coach. She is a former Division 1 player at UW-Milwaukee and played for Racine Soccer Club, Racine Horlick High School, Milwaukee Bavarians, and various adult co-ed teams throughout the years. She has coached both boys and girls and was a part of Racine Soccer Club, Shorewood High School, Green Bay Lightning, De Pere Select, and FC Wisconsin North.
Coach Vance is excited to join The Glory and the USL W League. The spirit and passion to keep women in the game is very exciting and very much a big reason she pursued the head coaching position.
A special thanks to TransUnion for supporting Linda and helping make The Green Bay Glory successful. This sends a powerful message of support for employees to stay engaged in their local communities and to pursue their interests and passions.
