Isabelle Harvey Takes Head Coaching Job At Cal Poly Pomona
May 24, 2006
After making three appearances in the NCAA Women's Soccer Tournament as a player and helping guide the Trojans back to the tournament in 2005 as an assistant coach, Isabelle Harvey has taken a position as the head women's soccer coach at Cal Poly Pomona.
'Isabelle has done a great job as a player and coach here,' USC head coach Jim Millinder said of Harvey. 'We're very disappointed to see her leave but we're happy for her growth as a coach. I wish her nothing but the best in the future at Cal Poly Pomona, I'm sure she'll help them win a national championship.'
She replaces Paul Caligiuri, who has been coaching both the men's and the women's teams for the past four years and will now coach only the men. Cal Poly Pomona is a Division II program, and the women's team last reached the NCAA Division II playoffs in 2001.
With Harvey's addition to the USC coaching staff for 2005, the Women of Troy finished 13-6-4 overall after taking third in the Pac-10 and breaking back into the NCAA Tournament after a year's absense. Before rejoining the USC ranks in 2005, Harvey had been an assistant men's and women's coach at Cal State Los Angeles for four years, including one season as interim head coach for both teams.
As a player, Harvey was a record-setter in goals, assists, game-winning goals and points for the Women of Troy, and also boasts significant international experience as a member of the Canadian National Team. She is the only USC player to have been named an All-American all four seasons.
