Goldman Sachs Banker Turns College Rugby Coach at Japan’s Keio

Koji Wada, a Goldman Sachs Group Inc. banker in Tokyo, was appointed head coach of the Keio University rugby team.

Wada, vice president and salesman in the fixed income, currency and commodity division, will start the role on Feb. 24, according to a statement released today by the Keio University rugby alumni association.

It hasn’t been decided whether Wada, 34, will remain employed by Goldman Sachs, said Sumiko Iwadate, a spokeswoman for the U.S. bank in Tokyo. The Asahi newspaper reported his appointment earlier today.

Wada joined New York-based Goldman Sachs in 2001 after graduating from Keio, where he played rugby and helped the team win the university championship in the 1999-2000 season, according to the statement. Keio hasn’t won it since then.

College rugby matches in Japan, such as the annual fixture between Keio and Tokyo rival Waseda University, regularly draw thousands of fans. Masanori Mochida, head of Goldman Sachs’s Japan unit, played fullback for Keio.
