Anagnost leaves Central Michigan for Miami

TAGS:  college women


[COLLEGE] Tom Anagnost, who led Central Michigan to back-to-back appearances in the NCAA Tournament, was hired as the new head women's coach at the University of Miami.

Anagnost is the third head coach in program history, replacing Tricia Taliaferro, whose contract was not renewed in November after nine seasons at the helm. 

After serving as an assistant at Central Michigan for the 2007 season, Anagnost took over the program during the 2008 season on an interim basis and was named the Mid-American Coach of the Year after leading his team to a 12-5-3 record and a second-place conference finish.

Amassing a 40-12-7 record at Central Michigan, Anagnost guided the Chippewas to NCAA Tournament appearances in 2009 and 2010.

"I'm extremely grateful and very excited for this wonderful opportunity to be the head women's soccer coach at the University of Miami," said Anagnost. "It is of the utmost importance to me that our current and future student-athletes are ultra-committed to the highest standard of excellence."

After taking over the Chippewas in 2008, Anagnost also helped Central Michigan finish with the top grade-point average in the nation each year.
