Former U.S. national team star Paul Caligiuri resigned as Division II Cal Poly Pomona men's coach to focus on other professional interests.

Caligiuri, who has been active in a bid to bring a pro team to Las Vegas as a spokesman for the Las Vegas Sports & Entertainment Group, spent seven years with the Broncos' men's teams and had coached the women's team for four teams.

"Cal Poly Pomona gave me the opportunity to coach at the collegiate level seven years ago and I've decided that now is the time to begin a new chapter in my life,'' Caligiuri said. "There is no question that my work with the student-athletes - both from my time with the men's team and also coaching the women's team - has been the single-greatest experience I've had as a coach. This university will always hold a special place in my heart.''

Caligiuri's overall record in seven seasons with the men's team was 45-67-16 and 35-52-12 in the California Collegiate Athletic Association. Caligiuri went 37-31-1 as the women's coach from 2002-2005.

Caligiuri, a starter on the 1990 and 1994 U.S. World Cup teams,  was elected to the U.S. Soccer Hall of Fame and recently named to the NCAA's 50th anniversary men's soccer team.

STREAKING CAMPBELL. Vince Petrasso and Richard Jata scored to give 24th-ranked Campbell a 2-0 win over High Point for its 11th straight victory.
 
Keeper Aaron Johnson collected his sixth consecutive shutout and extended his scoreless streak to 570 minutes as the Camels (13-5-0) dealt the Panthers their first home loss of the season.
 
Petrasso put the Camels in front in the 12th minute off Josue Soto's assist. Jata scored on a 72nd-minute free kick to give give at least one goal in each of his last seven matches.
