4. NEW PROGRAM: Calabrese gets ETSU job
January 17th, 2007 1:53AM



East Tennessee State introduced Clemson assistant Scott Calabrese as the head coach of its new men's program.

"It is truly an honor to be named the first head men's soccer coach in the history of ETSU," Calabrese said. "The vision of the university, the athletic department and the community shows a deep commitment to the future of ETSU and the region. I am excited to be a part of this growth and look forward to building a team that brings a sense of pride and tradition to ETSU, as well as the local soccer community."

The ETSU men will begin play in 2007 and have scholarships in 2008 when it will compete in the Atlantic Sun Conference.

The construction of a new soccer complex is part of a $104 million project for the construction of facilities for the Bucs' athletic programs.

ETSU, which has had women's soccer since 1997, will become only the second Division I men's program in Tennessee. Memphis is a perennial contender in the Conference USA. The only Division I school to add men's soccer as a varsity program in the last decade was Michigan in 2000.
