CLEMSON, SC- Eddie Carvacho has been named an assistant men’s soccer coach as announced by Clemson Head Men’s Soccer Coach, Trevor Adair.

Carvacho comes from Hendersonville, TN where he worked as a marketing manager for Quest Digital Media in Nashville, TN. He also founded and ran the first year-round soccer coaching and training academy in Middle Tennessee in 1995-2000. There he selected and organized professional coaching staff that provided training services to more than 10,000 participants.

Carvacho was a United States National Team pool goalkeeper under Bob Gansler and Bora Milutinovic between 1990-1992. He played professionally with the Atlanta Ruckus in 1997. He also played in the MLS with the Columbus Crew.

Carvacho was a NSCAA All-American and a first-team All-South selection at South Alabama. He was named All-Sunbelt Conference all four years. He was the second player in the history of the conference to be named all-league for four years. He also started 80-84 collegiate games during his career. He set the school record for most shutouts in a career with 32.

“Besides training our goalkeepers, Eddie’s background in soccer is a great asset to our program,” said Adair. “His ability to market our program and his work ethic will be great additions. I have known him for 15 years, and I can’t think of anyone better to join our staff.”

“This is an unbelievable opportunity for me to join the Clemson soccer program,” said Carvacho. “It is like a dream to be part of a winning tradition. I appreciated Coach Adair’s confidence in me, and allowing me to be part of such a winning tradition. I am thrilled and happy to join the Clemson program.”
