Raleigh, NC – Today Sean Nahas, Director of Soccer (Interim) and ECNL Director, announced that CASL will be conducting a nationwide search for a new Older Boys Classic Program Director. CASL staff coach Stuart Brown, who most recently held the post, will be the new Executive Director of Soccer for the Tennessee Soccer Club effective June 2.  Brown, who began his coaching career at CASL in 2000, has cultivated the experience needed to move on to a leadership role with Tennessee Soccer Club. After joining CASL in 2000, Brown left for a decade to hone his coaching skills before returning to CASL in 2011.

"I am proud to have been a part of the CASL organization over the past three years. It was with great pleasure that I was able to share my knowledge and experience with the players, coaches, and parents that form this great club,” said Brown. “I want to thank everyone for making my time here an important part of my professional development. And to the membership, thanks for all the sacrifices you make that afford people such as myself to do what we love. Thanks again, CASL. I look forward to watching your continued success from afar that makes you not only the top club in the region but also nationally."

Brown’s new role will give him the opportunity to use his leadership, coaching, and organizational abilities to help manage a club that serves around 120 boys and girls teams ages 8-18. Tennessee Soccer Club was officially founded in 2012 through a merger of the Tennessee Futbol Club and the Brentwood Soccer Club.

"We would like to congratulate Stuart on his new position and thank him for the time he put into CASL,” said Nahas. “This is a great step in his career and we wish him the best of luck at Tennessee Soccer Club.”

CASL will officially post the position for the Older Boys Program Director in the coming weeks on www.CASLnc.com as well as on national job posting databases. The position will continue to oversee the U15-U18 CASL Classic boys’ program, which is comprised of nearly 20 teams across the age groups.
