“We thank Mark Carr for the time he gave our soccer program, and we wish him well in his future endeavors,” said Castiglione. “We’ll begin our national search for a new head coach immediately to build upon the program’s successes.”

Carr was hired in January 2020 and coached the Sooners to an 18-31-6 record over his three seasons, including a 9-8-3 mark in 2022.
