MOST COMMENTED

[CHARLOTTE] As expected, associate head coach Kevin Langan was named  Charlotte's new head men’s coach, replacing Jeremy Gunn, who left to take the men's job at Stanford.

During Langan’s three years as a member of the 49ers coaching staff, Charlotte won 40 games, reached the 2011 College Cup Final and captured an Atlantic 10 regular-season title.

He will be the seventh head coach in the 36-year history of the 49ers’ men’s soccer program.

“Kevin has been an integral part of the success of our soccer program,” Athletic Director Judy Rose said.  “We are thrilled that he has decided to take over the reigns as head coach.  I am confident that the continuity of his leadership along with his strong knowledge of soccer will provide a smooth transition for our returning players and will be extremely attractive to prospective players.”

Langan was promoted from his role as assistant coach last July.

Before moving to Charlotte, Langan spent four years as the head boys coach of the Classics Elite Soccer Academy in San Antonio, Texas. The native of the island of Jersey was a standout player for the University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio and represented Great Britain at two World University Games.
