FULLERTON, Calif. -- Cal State Fullerton assistant women's soccer coach Diego Bocanegra has been promoted to the position of associate head coach it was announced today.
"I am very happy to announce the promotion of Diego to Associate Head Coach of the Cal State Fullerton women's soccer program," sixth-year Head Coach Demian Brown said. "This is well-deserved for his dedication, work ethic, and overall commitment to the success of our program. I look forward to our work together in the coming seasons and feel confident that the program will continue to achieve our highest goals."
Bocanegra completed his fourth year on the sidelines of Titan Stadium in 2012, helping the Titans to a 10-9-1 overall record and a 7-2 mark in Big West Conference play for the program's sixth league regular season crown. Fullerton advanced to the championship match of the Big West Tournament, falling in overtime by a 1-0 count.
He was recently named the Far West Regional Assistant Coach of the Year by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America and was a finalist for the organization's Gleen "Mooch" Myernick College Assistant Coach of the Year award.
"I'm honored to be named the Associate Head Coach," Bocanegra said. "Demian has always treated me as a head coach so I want to thank him for his continued support as we grow this program. I believe in our team and look forward to chasing after another Big West Championship in 2013. This is an exciting time for this university and our soccer program and I am grateful for Dr. Garcia, Dr. Eanes, Dr. Walk, Jim Donovan and our athletic administration for seeing value in my work and supporting our program."
