Khosroshahin out after 11th-place finish
[USC: Women] Ali Khosroshahin, who led USC to an NCAA title in his first season in 2007, has been relieved of his duties as
the Women of Troy's head coach following their 11th-place finish in the Pac-12.
USC won the NCAA title in his 2007 debut season -- the first by a Pac-12 team -- and made NCAA Tournament
appearances in the next three seasons, but the Women of Troy finished with sub-.500 records in each of the past three seasons. USC was 8-10-2 in the just-concluded 2013 campaign and went 3-7-1 in
Khosroshahin's overall record at USC was 82-53-15, but just 21-33-5 in the last three years. In Pac-12 play, he was 30-31-8 and his teams did not place higher than sixth the
last three seasons.
"We wish Ali well and thank him for his dedicated service in bringing the first NCAA women's soccer title to USC and to the Pac-12 in 2007," said USC athletic director
Pat Haden. "But based on the past few years, we felt it was time to go in a new direction. We need to reinvigorate our program and get back to contending for
NCAA and conference championships."
