Charlotte has announced the promotion of Kevin Langan as the new soccer coach.
Langan replaces Jeremy Gunn, who resigned to become head coach at Stanford after leading Charlotte to the NCAA tournament's College Cup. Charlotte lost 1-0 to rival North Carolina in the championship game.
Langan says he's "extremely excited and honored to become the head coach," calling it "quite humbling."
This will be Langan's first college head coaching job. He spent four years as the head boys' coach of the Classics Elite Soccer Academy in San Antonio before coming to Charlotte in 2009. Langan came to the United States in 2004 from the University of Bath in England.
