UIC women’s soccer program moves on from head coach Tom Anagnost

CHICAGO – The University of Illinois Chicago (UIC) has announced that Tom Anagnost will not be reappointed as head coach of the women’s soccer program when his appointment expires at the end of December.

“We thank Tom for his contributions over the past two years to advance the competitiveness of our women’s soccer program,” said UIC Director of Athletics Michael Lipitz. “After continuing to evaluate all aspects of our program following the completion of fall training, however, we determined that a change in leadership was in order.”

UIC assistant Dustin Downey will assume the role of interim head coach and guide the program through the spring season.

In 2019, Anagnost led the Flames to a 12-6-1 record, including a 7-2 mark in conference play, and an appearance in the Horizon League Championship game.

A national head coaching search will be conducted in the spring, led by UIC Deputy Athletics Director/Senior Woman Administrator and sport administrator for women’s soccer Farrah Manthei.
