Ninth Season at Georgia Southern
Career Record - 51-82-10 (Eight Seasons)
Record at GS - Same

The 2006 Southern Conference Coach of the Year, Kevin Kennedy enters his ninth season at the helm of Georgia Southern Eagle Soccer.

Georgia Southern's 2013 squad closed the season on an upward trend, winning four of the last five regular season games including a 2-1 overtime victory at Furman behind a pair of goals from Witt Carlisle. The Eagles avenged a late-season loss at UNCG with a 1-0 victory over the Spartans to open their final postseason in the SoCon. That win sent the Eagles to their season-straight SoCon Semifinal appearance.

GSU earned its second-straight home playoff game in 2012, placing fourth in the SoCon standings. The Eagles converted the home game into an overtime win and a trip to the SoCon Semifinals in Cary, N.C. GSU's fourth place finish was solidified in the final game of the regular season when GSU scored twice late to equalize and defeat Charleston in overtime.

After two years that didn't reach expectations, the 2011 Eagles performed a patented Kennedy rebound. GSU posted a 4-3 league mark in the 2011 season, leading the conference in the early weeks of the season before finishing third.  GSU also earned a home match in the 2011 SoCon Tournament, hosting a postseason game for the first time since 2008.

Stellar play from Luigi Clendening paced the Georgia Southern offense which scored its highest goal total since the 2001 season. Clendening scored 13 goals ranking among the top-10 goalscorers in the nation and earning SoCon Co-Player of the Year Honors.

The 2008 season was a year to remember for Kennedy. The Eagles became just the 16th different team to defeat Clemson under the lights at historic Riggs Field. Georgia Southern shocked a crowd of almost 6,000 defeating the Tigers 2-1 in one of the biggest non-conference wins in school history.

The memories didn’t end there for the Eagles. With SoCon Tournament seeding on the line, Kennedy pulled off another shocker earning the school’s first win over UNC Greensboro en route to a second place finish in the SoCon.

In 2007, Kennedy saw his Eagles take part in a rare opportunity, performing in front of a national audience.  Played at UNCG Soccer Stadium in Greensboro, N.C. (Oct. 26, 2007), Fox Soccer Channel broadcast a rematch of the 2006 SoCon Tournament championship.

Hired days before the team reported for fall 2006 practice as the interim head coach, Kennedy helped turn around a 7-10-1 team that finished tied for last place in the SoCon in 2005, to a 10-6-3 record and a top-10 regional showing that ultimately peaked at No. 7 in the South region by the NSCAA/Adidas rankings.
Kennedy was soon promoted to his current permanent head coach status in December 2006 following a remarkable season that exceeded initial expectations.

The 2006 Eagles produced their best campaign since 1997 when GSU finished with a 14-4-2 record.  Georgia Southern’s appearance in the SoCon Championship match versus UNC Greensboro (Nov. 5, 2006) was an accomplishment that hadn’t occurred in a decade.

The Eagles shut out eight teams during the 2006 campaign, tying the record set back in 1990, including a scoreless draw versus visiting UNC Greensboro (Sep. 20, 2006), the eventual SoCon regular season and tournament winner and No. 15 ranked team in the country.

Eagle players have garnered 10 All-SoCon selections. Jon Cox received the program's first SoCon Freshman of the Year honor in 2006. In 2011 Luigi Clendening had a stellar season to pick up SoCon the SoCon Player of the Year award.

Academically, Kennedy has seen several of his pupils demonstrate excellent work in the classroom. Following the 2006-07 school year, seven Eagles were represented on the SoCon Honor Roll, having earned at least a 3.0 GPA.  At the end of 2007-08, the men’s soccer team had nine individuals on the Honor Roll.

A member of the NSCAA, he owns a United States Soccer Federation ‘A’ license and received from the NSCAA an Advanced National diploma and Director of Coaching diploma.
