Glenn Evans will embark on his fourth consecutive year as the head of the Centenary Ladies soccer program after serving as an assistant coach and taking over several administrative roles for the last 13 years.
Evans is known as the pioneer of the Centenary soccer programs. Serving as both a head coach and assistant, he helped build the program to its competitive ways.
After reassuming the role in 2010, Evans guided the Ladies to a 4-14 overall record and a 1-8 mark in the College’s final year of NCAA Division I and as a member of The Summit League. The squad posted wins over Louisiana College, Texas College, Millsaps, and UMKC. Evans coached sophomore Holden Penney to Honorable Mention All-League and LSWA Honorable Mention honors in 2010. Senior Catie Depew was honored with Centenary’s Outstanding Athletic Achievement Award following the conclusion of the season.
While an assistant, Evans helped guide the Ladies to a very successful 2009 season, notching a season record of 11-6-1, while posting a five-game win streak at the beginning of the season.
Because of the impressive play, several Ladies received post season honors, highlighted by sophomore Katie Valdez, being named first team All-Summit League and First Team All-LSWA.
As a head coach for Centenary, Evans posted a 161-105-3 record in 14 seasons with the Gents and a 70-39-3 record with the Ladies in just six seasons.
During Evans tenure, the Gents posted nine consecutive winning seasons (1983-91), including three Trans America Athletic Conference Championships.
With the team’s success over those years, Evans was named TAAC Coach of the Year in 1983, 1988, 1989, 1990 as well as receiving that honor for his direction of the Ladies program in 1994.
Evans received his B.S. in Health and Physical Education from Centenary in 1969. He received his Master’s degree in education from the University of Georgia in 1970.
Evans and his wife, Karen, have four sons, Chad, Scott, Trey, and Brian and they currently reside in Shreveport.
