Soccer coach to resign
UALR head soccer coach Freddy Delgado recently announced his plans to resign from his position at the end of the 2012 regular season.
During his five year tenure at UALR, Delgado assembled a .329 winning percentage (32-61-4), but is currently in the midst of his most disappointing season. The Trojans are winless in seven conference games and only have one win to its credit through 15 games.
Delgado joined UALR in 2008 after being an assistant coach at the University of Louisiana-Monroe for seven years.
Delgado’s best year at UALR came in 2009 when he led the Trojans to a 9-12-1 record and a berth in the conference tournament.
In that tournament, the eighth-seeded Trojans knocked off the heavily favored Florida International Panthers by a score of 1-0. It was the first time in Sun Belt Conference history that an eight seed defeated the number one seed.
But, that was the last time the UALR soccer team would reach the postseason, as Delgado was unable to find any consistency after that season.
Delgado will wrap up his five year stint at UALR with three remaining games on the conference schedule, including the season finale at home against Arkansas State on Oct. 26.
