[COACHING MOVES] Maryland assistant coach Russell Payne has been named the Army head coach, becoming the 11th head coach in the history of the Black Knights' program.

Payne comes to West Point after five years as an assistant coach at Maryland, which won a pair of national championships in 2005 and 2008.

"It is a tremendous honor to be selected the head men's soccer coach at Army," said Payne. "West Point is our nation's top institution and the traditions here run as deep as they come."

Payne started in the Maryland goal for four years.

"I have such mixed emotions at the moment.  I am very sad to see him go but I am truly delighted that he is embarking on a terrific new opportunity to be the head coach at Army," said Maryland's Sasho Cirovski. "Russell Payne embodies Maryland soccer.  He was one of my first recruits that took on the challenge of helping me build our program."
