Marc Bucci already was familiar with the men’s soccer program at Pitt-Greensburg, having served as an assistant coach in 2017.

That made his transition to head coach a little easier.

Bucci will take over the program following the departure of Dan Keefe, who left to become an assistant at Lincoln Memorial University in Harrogate, Tenn.

Bucci was an assistant at Pitt-Johnstown last season, the school at which he played his college soccer from 2009-12. A Plum graduate, he also coached the Gateway boys team and led the Gators to their first playoff appearance in nine years in 2016.

He was a four-year starting midfielder at UPJ after earning All-WPIAL honors at Plum.

“Marc will bring the passion and pride back to the program and help elevate us to the next level,” UPG athletic director Jeromy Yetter said. “I know our student-athletes will be excited to work with him as their coach.”

Said Bucci: “My hope is to bring back the excitement to the players of this program and help them find the passion for the sport they love.”

Bucci works as an instructor and coach with the Allegheny Force Football Club.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
