CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - Coe College women's soccer Head Coach Scott Myers has resigned to pursue other coaching opportunities, Director of Athletics John Chandler announced on Thursday.
Myers has accepted a job as assistant coach at NCAA Division I Illinois State. Myers, a 2001 graduate of Coe, took over the women's program in 2013. In four years as head coach, the Kohawks were 38-32-6, putting together back-to-back winning seasons the last two years. The 2015 squad went 15-1-3, setting the school record for wins in a season. Myers was named the Iowa Conference Coach of the Year in 2016.
"We wish Scott well in his new coaching opportunity," Chandler said. "While we are sad to see Scott go, we are excited for the level he has raised the program to."
Myers has a 60-60-9 career record between three years as head coach at Menlo and four years at Coe. Along with the school record for wins, the 2015 team finished second in the Iowa Conference with a 5-1-1 record and advanced to the Iowa Conference Tournament Semifinals. The Kohawks were ranked as high as 15th in the nation in 2015.
Coe will return 10 starters to the 2017 team, highlighted by All-Iowa Conference selections Allison Stubbs (Fort Collins, Colo./Fossil Ridge), Jordan Holmes (Cedar Rapids, Iowa/Kennedy) and MJ Winterer (Omaha, Neb./Central).
A national search for a new coach is underway.
