SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - Kai Edwards, who joined the UC Santa Barbara women's soccer coaching staff as an assistant coach last spring, has been promoted to Associate Head Coach, head coach Paul Stumpf announced this week.

"The promotion is well-deserved for Kai," Stumpf commented. "He works very hard, has great energy, and is an outstanding coach. This move is a great one for our program."

Edwards, who along with Stumpf was instrumental in this season's outstanding Gaucho recruiting class, is looking forward to the opportunity.

"I am excited to be part of a program that is gearing up to make a run at the Big West title and an NCAA Tournament bid," Edwards said. "The coming years could be very special."

Edwards came to UCSB from his alma mater, Sonoma State, where he was an assistant coach.
