Drew Courtney Named Head Coach of WPSL Chattanooga FC Women’s Team
Chattanooga FC continues to build its organization as Drew Courtney is named the new head coach for their WPSL soccer women’s team. Courtney attended Chattanooga Christian School during his youth years and most recently served as head coach of the men’s program at Bryan College leading his squad to a 13-5-2 record in 2015.
Soccer News: Chattanooga FC is pleased to announce Drew Courtney as the new head coach for the CFC women’s team. Coach Courtney comes home to join the club after spending the past two years as the head coach for Bryan College men’s team.
“I’m thrilled to come home,” Courtney said, “Chattanooga FC is really building something great, and I’m honored to help contribute. We will work hard and give the fans the best product we can on the pitch.”
Courtney said he’s glad to be back with CFC—but this time standing on the other side of the sideline. Before taking to the sidelines and becoming a soccer coach, Courtney played midfield for Lander University in South Carolina and went on to play for three seasons with NPSL’s Chattanooga FC.
Courtney’s roots in Chattanooga run deep. A graduate of Chattanooga Christian School, Coach Courtney started all four seasons in midfield for NCAA II Lander University in South Carolina. After graduation Courtney spent two seasons with PDL teams in California and Mississippi, and three additional seasons with the CFC men’s team before focusing his career on coaching.
Courtney comes back home from Bryan College, where the 2015 Lions amassed a 13-5-2 record and progressed to the AAC Championship game.
