Scott Fogarty has been named as the new head women’s soccer coach at Central Christian College.
Fogarty takes over for interim head coach and former CCC All-American Neva Morales, who stepped down at the completion of the 2013 season.
Fogarty comes to Central Christian from Cairn University, where he ranks third all-time in wins in the 55-year history of the men’s soccer program. He led the Highlanders to three regular-season NCCAA East Region championships and one national tournament appearance. The Highlanders were staples in the NCCAA II national rankings under Fogarty, reaching as high as No. 4 in 2013. He was also the head assistant women's coach for the BuxMont Torch FC in the Women's Premier Soccer League (WPSL), one step below the top professional league in the United States.
Prior to reaching the collegiate coaching ranks, Fogarty spent time working with Soccer Performance International, a company that specializes in professional soccer education and development among both players and coaches. Additionally, he served as a head coach within the Princeton FC travel soccer club and worked on staff with the Cairn women’s soccer team as a student-assistant during his collegiate days. His first coaching job came at Denbigh Baptist Christian School in Newport News, Virginia where he ran the girls’ varsity and boys’ JV programs.
He holds his NSCAA National Diploma, College Coach and Professional Development Certificate, Goalkeeper Level 1 License and USSF ‘D’ License.
CCC Athletic Director Chad Kerr is excited about the experience and wealth of knowledge Fogarty brings to the CCC coaching family.
"We are excited to have a coach coming on board to lead the women's soccer program with the credentials and coaching background that Scott has,” Kerr said. “Coach Fogarty, with his history of successful soccer coaching and recruiting ability, will have an immediate impact on next fall’s team."
As a player, he was a four-year standout and two-year captain for Cairn University. Fogarty was named first-team All-Conference for the North Eastern Athletic Conference and a four-time NSCAA/NCCAA first-team All-American. He twice earned All-Tournament recognition at the NCCAA National Tournament. Following his senior campaign, he was selected as the recipient for the Wayne C. Fink Award, an honor presented annually to the student-athlete that brings the highest level of regional and national attention to the athletic program of Cairn University. He was also voted Team MVP twice.
Fogarty graduated from Cairn University in 2005 with his B.S. in Biblical Studies. He and his wife Mary Beth just celebrated the birth of Shea Daniel Fogarty in November, their first child. They plan on moving to McPherson and getting settled, in the near future.
