Dan Abdalla

Nov. 3, 2011

FORT WORTH, Texas - TCU director of intercollegiate athletics Chris Del Conte has announced the resignation of head women's soccer coach Dan Abdalla.

Abdalla, who just completed his seventh season with the Horned Frogs, had a record of 57-65-9 at TCU and has a 111-103-17 overall mark. He was just the second head coach in TCU's women's soccer history.

"We thank Dan for his contribution to TCU and the time and effort he put into our women's soccer program," Del Conte said. "We wish him the very best in the future."

Prior to coming to TCU, Abdalla served five seasons as head coach at UNLV and won the Mountain West Championship with the Rebels in 2004.

"I am truly thankful to the TCU community and Chris Del Conte for the opportunities provided to me and my family," Abdalla said. "I feel we've significantly progressed the program, and I am excited about the future of TCU soccer. I want to thank all the people who make TCU such a special place and have been so great to work with, from the chancellor to the athletics administration, support staff, coaches, grounds crew and, most importantly, the student-athletes."

A national search will begin immediately for TCU's next women's soccer coach.
