David Morris enters his first season at the helm of the Lady Oaks soccer team after most recently coaching at Culver-Stockton College in 2009-10, compiling a record of 7-8-3 while leading the Wildcats to one of the best seasons in recent years. The Wildcats had just seven players when Coach Morris took over, and in just one season, they were an HAAC competitor, earning draws with nationally ranked Lindenwood and Benedictine.

In 1996, Morris coached the Rockville High School boys' soccer team and the Whitman High School girls' basketball team, where he helped lead as an assistant coach to the Maryland State Championships.

In 1995, Coach Morris earned the NSCAA Advanced National diploma.

Morris took over as coach of the women's soccer program at UW-Stout in 1999, a team that had never finished over .500 in its history. In 2001, the Blue Devils broke the .500 barrier, a season mark they set every season from then on under Coach Morris. In 2005, UW-Stout finished with an unbeaten record in the WIAC for the first and only time in school history. In 2005-06, Coach Morris was named to the NCAA D-III Central Region Championships Committee.

In 2007, Morris accepted the coaching position at CSU-Pueblo, his first at the NCAA D-II level, leading the team to a record of 14-6-1, the best record in program history and the best turnaround in all of Division-II that year while advancing to the conference championship game. The team finished with a record of 6-10-3 the previous season.

In 2008, CSU-Pueblo advanced to the RMAC playoffs for the second consecutive season for a first time in the program's history and Coach Morris was listed among the NCAAs winningest active coaches.

in 2007, CSU-Pueblo's Robin Hayes was named RMAC Player of the Year and Rikki Warmack ws named RMAC Women's Soccer Scholar Athlete of the Year, both under Morris's direction.

From 1999-2011, every team Morris has coached has won the NSCAA Team Academic Award, an eleven year streak of academic excellence.
