Susquehanna Changes Women's Soccer Position
SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Susquehanna's head women's soccer coach, Andrew Zechman, has resigned for personal reasons. Current head men's soccer coach Jim Findlay will serve as interim head coach for the 2011 fall season while also remaining at the helm of the men's team.
Guiding the women's soccer team is not new territory for Findlay, as he spent seven seasons (1999-2005) as SU's head women's soccer coach while simultaneously serving as the head men's soccer coach. He remains the winningest head women's soccer coach in Susquehanna history with a career 65-63-1 record, including a 14-5-1 mark in 2004. He was named the Commonwealth Women's Soccer Coach of the Year in both 2002 and 2004.
In 2006, Findlay became the fulltime coach of the men's program and this fall, he enters his 13th season as head coach of the men.
Findlay will have the help of first-year assistant women's soccer assistant coach Ericka Thomas as well as men's soccer assistant Nick Hoover, who will serve as the associate head women's coach while also retaining his title of assistant men's soccer coach. In addition, Terry Brennan remains on Findlay's men's staff as an assistant coach.
Zechman was entering his first season as head coach of the Crusaders following a five-year stint as an assistant coach with the program. He had been tabbed as the replacement for former head coach Kathy Kroupa, who spent four years as the head coach and who remains the head women's softball coach.
