New soccer assistant

Arkansas hired a sitting head coach to replace a vacancy on its soccer staff this week. Chris Neal, who has spent the past 10 seasons as head coach at Elon, will replace Kristi Kiely, who was hired as head coach at Point Loma Nazerne in December. Kiely had been on the Arkansas staff for three years.

Neal was the winningest coach in Elon’s history with a 90-76-31 record.
