Southmoreland's boys soccer team is in need of a new coach.

Chris Fabian recently resigned after three years on the job and 11 in the school district in various coaching positions. These included stints with the junior high boys and girls teams, as well as the ninth-grade boys team. He also served as assistant coach for the boys soccer team at the high school before being hired as head coach in July 2010.

When contacted recently, Fabian didn't want to say much about his reasons other than to say there wasn't a particular one that led to his decision. “Just a change of pace,” he said.

Athletic Director Charlie Swink admitted he was sad to see Fabian leave the post.

“I thought he did a good job,” Swink said. “I thought he'd be there longer. I wish him well. Hopefully, some day he'll come back.”

The Scotties finished 6-10-2, 5-6-1 in Section 6-AA in the recently completed season.
