Mount Olive College head women's soccer coach Chris Shaw will add a "summer job," serving as head coach of the Atlanta Silverbacks' men's soccer franchise in the Premier Development League. The PDL, which is part of the United Soccer League, begins its inaugural season in April.
Shaw completed his third season at Mount Olive, guiding the Trojans to a berth in the championship game of the Carolinas-Virginia Athletics Conference Women's Soccer Tournament in each of the last two years.
Mount Olive won the title in 2004 and was runner-up this season.
The Trojans have posted a 34-12 record over the past two seasons, including a 20-win season in 2004. Prior to Shaw's arrival, Mount Olive never had a winning season or advanced past the quarterfinal round of the CVAC Women's Soccer Tournament. Shaw was named 2004 CVAC Women's Soccer Coach of the Year.
The PDL is the only national developmental soccer league in the country, according to a news release on the Atlanta Silverbacks website. The league is geared primarily for soccer players under the age of 23 and college players may participate while maintaining their collegiate eligibility.
The Silverbacks' 16-game schedule runs until August and includes a trip to Eastern North Carolina against the Raleigh Elite.
"Coach Shaw is a highly motivated coach," said Jason Smith, head coach of the Silverbacks' USL First Division Team. "I've worked with him in the past and I believe he's the right candidate for the new PDL team, which is designed to bridge the gap between our youth and our professional programs."
"It is an honor to be involved with an organization like the Atlanta Silverbacks," said Shaw. "I'm very impressed with their commitment to the game of soccer at all levels, and I'm excited about the opportunity they have presented me as the head coach of the Atlanta Silverbacks PDL team."
