Duffy leaving as Fox Chapel girls soccer coach
TribLIVE Sports Videos
Erik Duffy, who has been the coach of the Fox Chapel girls soccer team the past six seasons, is resigning after a job relocation.
During Duffy's tenure, the Foxes were regular participants in the WPIAL playoffs.
“I was there six seasons, and the team made the playoffs every year,” he said.
The Foxes also won section championships twice and made it to the quarterfinals last season.
“Last season was our best of the six,” he said. “I think the future is looking bright for the program. I will miss the daily sessions with the girls. They kept me young. They are good players and great young ladies. Their individual personalities made the season always fun and interesting.
“We had some fun times and played some really nice soccer.”
