BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – After eight successful seasons as the women’s soccer coach at Eastern Florida State College, Jeff Carr has decided this will be his final year.
Carr, who is also the Vice President of Athletics, will remain in that position at Eastern Florida State College. The women’s soccer team is currently 3-0 and ranked No. 1 in the NJCAA Division I poll.
Jeff Carr has built the Eastern Florida State College women’s soccer program from the ground up, reaching the national championship tournament the past six seasons.
“I just thought it was time,” Carr said.
“It is all encompassing, there are so many hours that go into it, I am not sure people realize just how many hours go into being both the athletic director and coach. But there is never a perfect time, you love all the kids and you want to coach them and watch them graduate but at some point you have to say it is time. I want to spend a little more time with family and put all my energy into being the athletic director and continue to move forward as a program.”
After the upcoming season, Carr will hand his clipboard to a new coach for the first time. The Newcastle, Ontario native will begin the search for a new women’s soccer coach immediately.
Carr started the program in 2010 and has had a winning season in all eight years at the helm, accumulating a 102-19-5 record. Under Carr, the program has reached the national championship game twice, in 2012 and 2015 and has won the Region 8 Conference title five times.
“Jeff Carr has done an incredible job as the EFSC women’s soccer coach, making it one of the best programs in the country,” said college President Dr. Jim Richey.
“His teams are nationally ranked every year, regularly contend for the national championship and play their hearts out game after game.”
“His accomplishments are even more impressive when you consider that he has done it while also serving as the Associate Vice President for Athletics, directing all of the college’s sports programs and dedicating himself to the academic success of our student-athletes. His leadership will continue to be a guiding force for women’s soccer in the years ahead.”
The Titans will host Montverde Academy Saturday night at 6 p.m. at Titan Soccer Complex. Admission to games at Titan Soccer Complex are free.
