Josh Osit joined the Columbia coaching staff in the summer of 2014. Osit arrived to Mornigside Heights following two successful years at Rutgers University, a member of the Big 10 conference. In both seasons, the Scarlet Knights received at-large bids to the NCAA tournament. In 2013, the Scarlet Knights fell to UCF in penalties in the conference final, before facing Big 12 Champion West Virginia in the NCAA tournament. Osit was primarily in charge of the goalkeepers, coaching senior Jess Janosz to the conference tournament's Most Outstanding Player award.
