Waynesburg hires coach

Waynesburg University today announced the hiring of Sean McCarthy, pictured, as the Yellow Jackets' head men’s and women’s soccer coach. He replaces former men’s coach Carl DeiCas and women’s coach Jim Rue.

McCarthy comes to Waynesburg from SUNY Old Westbury, where he was working in his second stint as the first assistant coach with the Panthers' men's team. McCarthy's first stint at Old Westbury ran from 2005 to 2008. In 2007, McCarthy helped lead the Panthers to the Skyline Conference title and the school’s first berth in the NCAA Division III tournament.

McCarthy also spent one year as an assistant at Xavier University.

“We did a wide search for a new soccer coach,” Waynesburg athletic director Rudy Marisa said. “We believe we have chosen the right person to make progress with our men’s and women’s teams.”

McCarthy will be one of three coaches in the Presidents' Athletic Conference who handle both the men's and women's programs. The other two-team coaches are at Thomas More and Westminster.

McCarthy certainly has his work cut out for him. Like the majority of teams at Waynesburg, the Yellow Jackets' men's and women's soccer programs have struggled for many years. Victories have been few. The Waynesburg men have an 11-44-4 record over the last three seasons, including a 2-14-2 mark in the PAC. The Waynesburg women have been slightly better, going 20-30-4 overall and 6-14-1 in the PAC.
