USF men’s soccer coach accepts job at N.C. State
USF men’s soccer coach George Kiefer told the school he is resigning for the same position at N.C. State, USF announced Tuesday morning.
Kiefer’s 15 seasons at the school produced continued excellence from the men’s soccer team, with the Bulls qualifying for the NCAA Tournament in nine of those 15 seasons and winning three conference titles.
“George has been a tremendous asset to USF Athletics for the past 15 years,” USF Director of Athletics Mark Harlan said in a release. “We thank him for his service to our university and our student-athletes and wish him all the best in his future endeavors. We will begin a national search immediately to identify a new leader for our men’s soccer program.”
After beginning 2016 with an 0-3-2 record, Kiefer rallied the Bulls to win the regular season AAC title and earned a spot in the NCAA Tournament. USF (10-6-4) was knocked out in the first round when FGCU won 3-0 in penalty kicks.
