Women's soccer coach resigns

Pitt-Bradford has announced the resignation of head women's soccer coach Marquis Walker, effective Tuesday, June 20.

Walker coached just one season at Pitt-Bradford with the Panthers finishing 9-6-4 overall and 5-1-3 and in third place in the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference. The team then lost to Pitt-Greensburg in the conference tournament semifinals.

Walker, who had replaced Mike Idland, arrived at Pitt-Bradford with a resume that spanned several levels of soccer, including seven seasons as head coach at Division II/NAIA Malone University in Canton, Ohio.

A national search for Walker's replacement will begin immediately.

The Panthers graduated just two seniors and will have six AMCC all-conference selections returning, including two-time first-team pick, goalie Sarah Dailey.

Soccer camps scheduled for June 26-30 and July 7-10 will take place under the direction of head men's soccer coach Nathan Whitehurst. For more information, contact him at ntw5@pitt.edu.
