CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Former Harvard assistant coach Carl Junot has been named the head men’s soccer coach at Tufts, it was announced over the weekend. 

Junot, a member of the Crimson staff under Jamie Clark, the Virginia B. and James O. Welch ’52 Head Coach for Harvard Men’s Soccer, for two seasons, helped Harvard reach the NCAA tournament in 2008 and 2009.  The Crimson won the Ivy League title last fall, posting a 14-4-1 overall record en route to the third round of the NCAA tournament. 

At Harvard, Junot was responsible for all aspects of team development and handled recruiting, video analysis and off-season player development.  He also worked with Missouri Athletic Club Hermann Trophy finalist Andre Akpan ’08-09, as well as three Harvard players who were selected at the MLS Superdraft (Akpan, Michael Fucito ’07-08 and Kwaku Nyamekye ’10). 

During his career as an assistant coach, Junot has coached five conference players of the year and 11 players drafted into MLS professional soccer.  In addition, College Soccer News named him as a Top Assistant Coaches honoree while at Harvard in 2008. 
In nine seasons as a Division I collegiate soccer coach, Junot was a part of six conference championship teams.  Prior to coaching at Harvard, Junot coached for seven years at New Mexico. He was an assistant coach for the Lobos from 2001 through 2005, and then was promoted to associate head coach and held that position until the spring of 2008.
A 2001 graduate of Furman, Junot was an all-region selection on 2001.
