has been achieved,” Cougar Director of Athletics Bill Moos said. “I am confident Steve Nugent is the ideal choice to maintain one of the premier
women’s soccer programs in the Pac-12. His experience, an upgraded facility and quality student-athletes put us in a great position to meet and exceed the goals we have set.”
