Walker Leaves Duquesne

  Duquesne University Athletics has announced that now-former women's soccer head coach James Walker is leaving Duquesne to take an assistant coaching position with Pennsylvania State University Men's Soccer. Both Penn State Men's and Women's Soccer are very successful NCAA Division I programs with multiple Big Ten Conference championships between them. The men's team was the Big Ten regular season and postseason champion as recent as 2005.
  Walker's time at Duquesne was one of growth for the women's soccer program. His record at the helm of the Dukes was a respectable 31-36-6, but more importantly, he led Duquesne Women's Soccer to its first-ever appearance in an Atlantic Ten Conference Championship (in 2005).
