Hageage will step down at conclusion of contract on Nov. 30
Eastern Washington University Women's Soccer head coach George Hageage will step down from his post at the conclusion of his contract on Nov. 30, 2013, announced by athletic director Bill Chaves on Monday, Oct. 28.
Assistant coach Julio Morales will lead the program on an interim basis while a national coaching search is conducted.
"We appreciate Coach Hageage's 14 years of service to our women's soccer program, the University and the greater Spokane community," said Chaves. "We sincerely wish George and his family the best as he moves forward in his career."
The longest tenured women's soccer coach in the Big Sky, Hageage helmed Eastern's program for the last 14 seasons, winning Big Sky Coach of the Year honors in 2004. In his previous 13 years at EWU, he produced 85 All-Big Sky players and saw the program earn 12 NSCAA Team Academic Awards.
Eastern completed its 2013 campaign last Sunday, Oct. 27, as seven seniors played their final match. The Eagles should return a solid core of experienced players for the upcoming season, headlined by the program's all-time leading scorer in junior Cassie Black.
