Bolowich ready for new challenge at Creighton

[COLLEGE] Elmar Bolowich, who led North Carolina to the NCAA Division I men's title in 2001 and appearances at the Men's College Cup the last three years, has left the Tar Heels to take the vacant men's coaching position at Creighton.

"I'm ready for a new challenge in my life, and Creighton has committed itself to making their men’s soccer team a national powerhouse,” said Bolowich, the 2010 ACC Coach of the Year. “I’d like to help take them there as I have done at Carolina.”

Assistant coach Carlos Somoano, who has worked at UNC for nine years, will be interim head coach.

Bolowich succeeded Anson Dorrance as men's head coach in 1989 when Dorrance decided to concentrate on the UNC women's program.

He led the Tar Heels to 15 NCAA Tournament appearances in 22 years.

“Elmar Bolowich has had longtime success as the head coach at the University of North Carolina in the toughest soccer conference in the country,” said Creighton Director of Athletics Bruce Rasmussen.

Bolowich will be Creighton's third coach in three years. Bob Warming left after the 2009 season to take the men's job at Penn State, and his replacement, Jamie Clark, left recently to become the head coach at the University of Washington.

Creighton is one of best-supported programs in the country.
