Varsity Head Coach
Head Coach Richard Grenier is in his 7th year at the helm of the Thunderbolt Soccer Program. Over the past seven years (2013-2019), the Bolts own an overall record of 74-30-20 (60-22-18 in league play). Grenier, who is in his 27th year as a head coach, is one of five coaches to earn over 250 RISCA league/playoff victories (274-126-75) in the 53 year history of RIIL play. His teams (299-131-83) have now qualified for the playoffs for the 26th time. Over the past three decades, his teams have earned 9 sportsmanship awards, 6 state final appearances, 3 state championships, 15 semi-final appearances and 11 Cranston "City Cup" Championships out of 16 games played. He has the distinction of being the only Rhode Island boys' soccer coach to have three different teams (Cranston West - 1996, West Warwick - 2007 & Cranston East - 2014) awarded the RISOA Team Sportsmanship Award, as well as three different schools win State Championships (Cranston West - 1996, West Warwick - 2004 & Cranston East - 2017).
Matt Grenier, who holds career records at West Warwick High School (376 saves, 38 wins & 20 shutouts), continues as Cranston East's Assistant Varsity Coach. In his two years at the helm of the Junior Varsity program, his teams have gone a remarkable 20-2-8 while scoring 56 goals and allowing just 18. Grenier, who is in fourth year at Rhode Island College as Physical/Health Education major, will be entering his fourth year as a Thunderbolt coach.
Jake Leander, who earned All-Conference honors last season while playing for the Knights, will once again play for CCRI this fall. The former All-Division defender from West Warwick will continue as a volunteer coach for his fourth consecutive year.
The Thunderbolts of Cranston East had a 31-game streak without being issued a card from 2013-2015. In 124 games played over the past seven seasons, the Bolt have averaged less than five cards (4.67) per year.
