PINE BLUFF Ark.
The University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff has hired Roberto Mazza as coach of its women’s soccer team.
Mazza is a former assistant coach at Mississippi Valley State University.
Last year’s UAPB team finished 1-15 overall and 0-4 in the Southwestern Athletic Conference.
“I’m excited for the opportunity,” Mazza said. “I think it will be a great experience. I’m familiar with the program from my time at MVSU. I honestly think there’s a lot of potential for growth. I think this program can make some big strides in the near future. Our goal is to have the Lady Lions contending for a SWAC tournament berth in the near future.”
Arkansas-Pine Bluff begins its season Sept. 5 on the road against the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.
