University of Tennessee at Chattanooga Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics David Blackburn announced the resignation of soccer coach J.D. Kyzer today. Kyzer recently finished his 15th season as the head of the Mocs’ soccer program.
“I certainly want to thank J.D. for his hard work and dedication during a lengthy tenure of serving our University,” stated Blackburn. “He was an asset to many student-athletes who represented Chattanooga Athletics over the last 15 years.”
Kyzer was the 2003 Southern Conference Coach of the Year and produced 14 All-Southern Conference performers in 15 seasons. Prior to his arrival at UTC, he spent five years as the head coach of Queens College in Charlotte. His 20-year career mark as a head coach stands at 145-190-23.
Assistant Coach Sam Stroud is serving as the Interim Head Coach. A national search has begun for the third head coach in the history of the program.
