Following a Cinderella run to the 2011 NCAA National Championship game, Charlotte head coach Jeremy Gunn was one of the hottest names among coaches in college soccer. In his five seasons with the 49ers, he developed a program with limited postseason success into a prominent national contender. It was a remarkable turnaround in a brief period.
Shortly after he closed in on the apex of building the 49ers program, a new opportunity was presented to Gunn that he could not pass up. Now, a fresh challenge awaits Gunn in the Stanford Cardinal program that has only appeared in the NCAA tournament once since 2002.
Gunn seized the opportunity to take on the next step in his coaching career when Stanford came calling, even though some amount of doubt surrounds his new conference. During the college soccer offseason, San Diego State, which is a member of the Pac-12 for men's soccer, announced it would be joining the Big West for all sports in the near future. With the Aztecs departure, the Pac-12 would fall below the required members standard for an automatic bid to the NCAA tournament.
