1. Charlotte hires Ft. Lewis coach Gunn


Charlotte has named Ft. Lewis coach Jeremy Gunn as the 49ers new head men's soccer coach.

Gunn led the Skyhawks to three NCAA Division II championship games in his eight-year stint, including each of the last two years. Ft. Lewis won the 2005 championship and finished as the runner-up in 2006. Gunn was named Division II National Coach of the Year in 2005 after leading the Skyhawks to an unbeaten (22-0-1) season.

A 1993 graduate of California State Bakersfield, Gunn boasts an eight-year record of 123-35-17 and led the Skyhawks to the RMAC Championship in each of the last three years.

Gunn becomes the program's sixth head coach, replacing John Tart, who resigned in November after a 12-year career with the 49ers.
