Holy Cross Head Men's Soccer Coach Elvis Comrie Announces Resignation

Dec. 24, 2008

WORCESTER, Mass. - Holy Cross head men's soccer coach Elvis Comrie announced his resignation today, effective Dec. 31, 2008. Comrie, who was the college's first full-time soccer coach, joined Holy Cross in 1991. His teams posted an overall record of 125-158-34 over the last 18 seasons, including a 52-49-19 mark in Patriot League play. Comrie's squads won five Patriot League regular season championships and advanced to the NCAA Tournament in 2002. He was also named the Patriot League Coach of the Year four times (in 1995, 1999, 2001 and 2007).

"It has been a tremendous experience and I have had the pleasure of working with some wonderful young men over the last 18 years," said Comrie. "We have built a strong program, and while I will move on to other opportunities, I am proud of what we have accomplished here."

"Elvis Comrie has built and maintained a strong, competitive program," said Holy Cross athletic director Richard M. Regan, Jr. "More importantly, he has recruited outstanding student-athletes over the years, who have represented Holy Cross well both on and off the field. He will be missed."

Holy Cross will immediately commence a national search for Comrie's replacement.
