Junot returns to take over Harvard program

[COLLEGE] Less than three months after being hired as the Tufts men's coach, Carl Junot has returned to Harvard as its new men's coach, replacing Jamie Clark, who stepped down last month to fill the vacancy at Creighton.

Junot worked as an assistant coach under Clark with the Crimson program from 2008-2010. Harvard posted a 26-10-1 overall record, won the Ivy League title in 2009 and reached the NCAA tournament both seasons.

“We are fortunate to have Carl back at Harvard to lead our program,” Harvard athletic director Bob Scalise said.  “He developed into one of the top assistant coaches in the country during his time here. We looked nationally for our next head coach, but it soon became clear that the best candidate was right in our backyard.  Carl knows Harvard, he knows the program, and he has a proven track record in recruiting student-athletes. He will continue the upward ascent of our men’s soccer program for years to come.”

Junot previously served as an assistant coach at New Mexico for six seasons, including five years on the Lobo sidelines as a full-time assistant.

A native of San Antonio, Texas, Junot played his college soccer for Furman.

    Wow, though he may be a good coach, it doesn't say much about his character commitment to Tufts University.... three months on the job and off he goes back to "Hahvahd!" Must be either the $$$ or the prestige to coach an Iv League or both... Now Tufts is looking for a coach with a few weeks before the fall practice season begins - unless they've elevated the Assistant coach and made him an offer he can't refuse, i.e. leave for another HC job elsewhere!

    Harvard is NCAA Div. III school?
