[WASHINGTON STATE: Women] Steve Nugent, who spent the last three seasons at UNC Greensboro, was named the Washington State University head coach, replacing Keidane McAlpine, who left Pullman after just two seasons to become the head coach at Pac-12 rival USC.

Nugent becomes the sixth mentor in program history after spending the last three seasons at UNC Greensboro. His 2012 UNCG squad captured the Southern Conference regular=season title. He was an assistant coach at Rice (2001) and Georgia (2008-11) prior to becoming the UNCG head coach.
 
“I often say the hardest thing to do in our athletic programs is to sustain success once it 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.”
 
The Cougars advanced to the NCAA Tournament in five of the last six seasons, including a second-round appearance in 2009 and 2011. Last season, WSU set or tied 28 school records while finishing runner-up in the Pac-12 Conference.
