John Kerr, Jr., who starred on Duke's 1986 Division I championship team, has been named the Blue Devils' new men's head coach, replacing the retiring John Rennie.

Kerr, who had 17 caps for the USA and played professionally in England, Ireland, France, Canada and the United States, returns to Duke after nine years at Harvard. While with the Crimson, Kerr compiled a ledger of 81-57-13 while earning trips to the NCAA Tournament in his last two campaigns. In addition, he has served as the coaching director of the FC Greater Boston soccer club since 2002

"We are excited that John Kerr will be returning to Duke as our soccer coach," said Duke Director of Athletics Joe Alleva. "John is an outstanding coach and educator.  I am confident that he will continue and enhance the great tradition of Duke soccer so well established and maintained by John Rennie."

Kerr, who was inducted into the Duke Sports Hall of Fame in 2004, shared the 2006 Soccer America Player of the Year award with UCLA's Paul Caligiuriin 1986.

The Blue Devils went 18-5-1 and captured the school's first national championship. A two-time first team All-ACC and All-America choice, Kerr finished his career with 42 goals and 43 assists for 127 points. Those totals rank fifth, second and third, respectively, all-time at Duke.
