·1 min read

Jul. 7—Dakota Wesleyan University men's soccer coach Luis Pulido has announced his resignation. Pulido took the helm of the DWU men's soccer program in 2020.

Under Pulido, Dakota Wesleyan went 5-9-1 overall, 4-6-1 in Great Plains Athletic Conference play and earned a post-season GPAC tournament berth. Pulido coached three players to All-GPAC honors in his first season at the helm. Freshman Nrin Maloku was selected to the All-GPAC first team, while Tyler Anderson and freshman Carson Fox were tabbed with All-GPAC honorable mention honors.

"Coach Pulido had a big impact in a short amount of time with the men's soccer program," DWU Athletic Director Jon Hart said in a release. "He worked tirelessly to rebuild our roster numbers and team culture after experiencing sudden coaching changes. He is the ultimate players' coach and a rising star in this profession. It was a joy to work with him during his time at DWU and we wish him nothing but the best in his next chapter closer to family."

A national search is already underway for the next head coach.
