Bob Kucker has taken over the reigns of the Smyrna High girls soccer team.
He replaces Austin Hayes, who held the position the previous two seasons. Hayes was a volunteer coach and stepped down because of work commitments.
Kucker was an assistant under Hayes the past two seasons, so his familiarity with the team will be a plus and a large reason he was named the successor, said Smyrna athletic director Billy Harris.
“We are excited to have Coach Kucker and the soccer experience that he brings,” Harris said.
Along with his time with the Lady Bulldogs, Kucker has also been a coach in the Murfreesboro Soccer Club, where he helped coach the MSC boys 18U Premier squad.
