1. Boyd steps down as Cal women's coach
March 16th, 2007 6:35PM



Kevin Boyd has stepped down as the women's coach at the University of California after 10 seasons to attend to new family priorities

Since assuming the head coaching duties at Cal in 1997, Boyd compiled a 124-63-20 record and eight NCAA Tournament appearances. In 2005, he was named Pac-10 Coach of the Year and led the Bears to the third round of the NCAA Tournament.

"I'm thankful for 11 wonderful years at Cal and for all of the people who have touched my life during that time," Boyd said. "I'm excited to become a father this fall, and that blessing has changed my priorities a great deal. This was one of the hardest decisions I've had to make."

Boyd's departure follows the signing of one of Cal's best freshman classes in history. Midfielder Megan Jesolva and goalkeeper Jorden Kussman are ranked the No. 10 and No. 12 recruits in the country by Soccer Buzz.

Cal is the third member of the Pac-10 that will have a women's coaching change in the offseason. Jim Millinder was replaced by Cal State Fullerton's Ali Khosroshahin at USC, while Arizona State is seeking a replacement for Ray Leone, who became the Harvard women's coach.
