University of Georgia soccer program moves on from head coach Billy Lesesne
ATHENS, Ga. — Josh Brooks, University of Georgia J. Reid Parker Director of Athletics, has announced a leadership change in women’s soccer. Head coach Billy Lesesne will not return to the Bulldogs program next season, as he departs after a seven-year tenure.
“We appreciate Billy Lesesne and what he has done for our soccer program,” Brooks said. “We thank him for his dedication and wish him the very best in the future.”
Lesesne spent seven seasons as head coach of the Bulldog soccer program, compiling a 43-64-18 overall record and 18-41-10 mark against Southeastern Conference opponents. Lesesne was in the final year of his contract.
“Our expectation is to compete for postseason success and championships in every sport, we believe a leadership change is needed to achieve those goals,” Brooks said. “We remain committed to ensuring our student-athletes have the resources to achieve the standards of excellence here at the University of Georgia.”
Deputy Athletics Director Stephanie Ransom will be the point of contact for all things soccer-related during the transition. Georgia Athletics will immediately begin a national search for a new head coach.
