LORMAN, Miss. – Kevin Larry's coaching career has come full circle as he was tabbed the head women's soccer coach at Alcorn State University.
Larry, a product of Vicksburg, Mississippi, began his coaching career at the collegiate level as a volunteer assistant at Alcorn in 2012.
Most recently, Larry served as assistant coach at Jackson State in 2019. He helped the Tigers register a 7-3 conference record as the team finished the regular season on a six-game winning-streak without allowing a single goal.
Prior to JSU, Larry worked four seasons at Shaw University as assistant men's and women's coach from 2015-18.
In 2013, Larry worked at North Carolina at Chapel Hill during World Cup champion Crystal Dunn's senior year. He served as a volunteer assistant breaking down game footage for future training purposes with the match analysis team.
"Coach Larry is very experienced and brings a wealth of knowledge. He's an excellent recruiter, and he's coming back home. We're so excited to have him on board, and with the experiences and knowledge he has of Southwest Mississippi, we feel that Coach Larry will be an excellent addition to our program," said director of athletics Derek Horne.
At UNC, Larry worked for Anson Dorrance, one of the most successful head coaches in soccer history with 21 national championships and a U.S. Women's World Cup title in 1991 in China.
