Scott takes recruiting lead in second year with ETSU men’s soccer

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Feb. 8, 2019) -- ETSU head men’s soccer coach David Casper announced Friday morning that assistant coach Josh Scott would receive a promotion to recruiting coordinator, effective immediately.

Scott will enter his second season as part of the ETSU men’s soccer staff, as he was an instrumental part in kick starting the first season of the Casper regime. Last season, ETSU finished 9-7-1 and 4-1-1 in conference play for second place, while ranking as high as No. 18 in the national RPI rankings and as high as No. 2 in strength of schedule.

“I’m very happy to be promoting Josh,” Casper said. “I think the recruiting class we’ve put together this offseason is going to be really special. Josh has earned the respect of the players and has proven to be a valuable asset to our program. I look forward to working with him for many years to come.”

Scott joined Casper’s staff last season with numerous ties to the East Tennessee region. Prior to ETSU, Scott served as an Associate Head Coach and member of the Tusculum men’s soccer staff for four seasons. He has eight years of coaching experience across all three NCAA levels and 10 overall years of experience on the youth level.

“I’m very grateful for this opportunity,” Scott said. “I’ve really enjoyed my time at ETSU so far, and I’m a strong believer in the product that we are implementing. Working with Coach Casper has and will continue to help me keep growing as a coach while I’m continuing my path to eventually lead my own program one day.

“This promotion speaks volumes of the trust Coach Casper has put in me, and I look forward to recruiting excellent student-athletes to this great university.”
