Morgan Cathey was named the new Whitworth men’s soccer head coach last week according to a Whitworth athletic website press release. Former head coach Sean Bushéy resigned after 17 seasons with the program. Cathey will begin his duties on July 1 while Bushey will continue through the Pirates’ spring training.
Cathey is an Azusa Pacific University graduate from 2006, where he earned all-conference honors in his four years as APU’s starting goalkeeper. Cathey went on to a professional career in South Africa, spending four seasons.
The Whitworth men’s soccer program won eight of the last 12 NWC titles under Bushey. Cathey will be taking over a Pirate team that will lose just one starter to graduation, senior goalkeeper Kyle Novak. Whitworth will return four NWC First-Team players from last year, as well as six other NWC honorees in the coming 2013 fall season.
