Kelly Findley, a three-time All-American, a former professional soccer player, and the all-time winningest coach at Butler University, has been named the head men's soccer coach at NC State, Director of Athletics Debbie Yow announced on Wednesday.
"I would like to thank Athletic Director Debbie Yow, David Horning and Chris Kingston, as well as the rest of the search committee for the opportunity to lead Wolfpack men's soccer," Findley said. "I was very impressed with the vision the athletics administration has for the men's soccer program and the entire athletics department. Their vision is focused on excellence and achievement, and I'm excited about the possibilities that come with this position. NC State soccer has a rich tradition of excellence on and off of the field, and I look forward to working with the great alumni, players, parents and fans that support our program."
Looks like a solid hire. The guy turned Butler around in a hurry, he's young, and he has connections to North Carolina--he spent five years as an assistant at UNC-Charlotte.
