Chase Gwynn has been named head men’s soccer coach at Central Christian College of the Bible, Director of Athletics Kori Zarzutzki announced on Tuesday.
CCCB will be relaunching it's men's soccer program after a two-year absence from the sport, preparing for competition during the 2024 season.
Gwynn, a former student-athlete at Gordon College, comes to Central Christian after one season as assistant and lead technical analyst for the men's soccer program at Gordon College in Wenham, Mass.
"We are excited about Chase and his passion in building our men's soccer program," Zarzutzki said. "Not only does he bring enthusiasm and knowledge of the game, but he will also be a great mentor to lead the men in the program."
A native of Apopka, Fla., Gwynn started his collegiate soccer playing career at Wheaton College in Wheaton, Ill., before transferring to Gordon to play his final two seasons.
As a player at Gordon, he was a part of a Commonwealth Coast Conference championship and NCAA Division III national tournament team. Additionally, in his senior season he was awarded First Team All-CCC honors, First Team All-Region, and NCAA DIII All-American honors after finishing top 10 nationally in five offensive categories.
After college, Gwynn played with Chattanooga FC in NISA-Pro, making three appearances, and multiple other professional United Soccer League teams without making an appearance. He also spent time with semi-pro Mississippi Brilla in USL-2, a ministry based club who work with underprivileged youth in Jackson, MS.
"I’m incredibly thankful for the opportunity to be part of CCCB Men’s Soccer as it moves forward into a new chapter," Gwynn said. "I’d like to thank the CCCB leadership for their trust in and support of me leading the team, as well as those at the college who support the players and the program in ways that aren’t always apparent.
"I’m excited to contribute to a team where the players are able to grow in their relationships with Christ and use their talents to glorify Him on and off the soccer field. We want players who embody their faith, work hard in the classroom, and will contribute to a highly successful program on the pitch."
Gwynn graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Applied Physics from Gordon in 2021.
