Camden, NJ – Two new faces will lead the men’s and women’s soccer programs at Camden County College. Both coaches are have strong ties to Camden County College—one as an alumni and one as a professor. Solomon Jacobs takes over as the head women’s soccer coach and Kevin Nuss takes over as the head men’s soccer coach.
“We are confident that Coach Nuss and Coach Solomon will continue the history of success for these programs with an emphasis on academic success, development, retention, degree completion and moving our student-athletes onto four year institutions,” states William Banks, Director of Athletics.
Solomon Jacobs spent last season as an assistant coach for the Lady Cougars. Coach Jacobs has 12 years of semi-pro playing experience and over 10 years of coaching and training experience at a variety of different levels.
“As head coach, I am introducing ‘attractive’ and fundamental soccer playing styles, which will continue to develop the style of the game of future players,” states Coach Jacobs. “We will lead and encourage each player to reach their full potential, teach them the value of respect, care, responsibility, honesty and ability to uphold the tradition of winning both in the classroom and on the field of play,” states Coach Jacobs.
Jacobs holds a Bachelor of Science in information technology and a master’s in business administration. He is currently a full-time student in a doctoral program and is an adjunct professor at CCC, teaching computer information systems.
The Cougars men’s soccer program has been one of the most dominate teams in Region XIX, as well as a national contender. Coach Kevin Nuss played for the Cougars in 2003 under Coach Freeman and was an all-region and all-conference goalkeeper. Nuss was also named an Adidas/NSCAA First Team All-American. He went on to play two seasons at William Paterson University before transferring to Rowan University to finish out his collegiate playing career.
Coach Nuss came back to CCC for one season as an assistant coach under Freeman before heading to Rutgers University-Camden to be an assistant coach from 2008-2011. He then served as assistant coach at St. Joseph’s University from 2011 to 2012 and at Brown University from 2013-2014. Coach Nuss most recently spent time as an Associate Head Coach and General Manager of the Ocean City Nor’easters and Cedar Stars Academy.
“I am extremely excited about returning to Camden County College. I am appreciative of my experience here as a student-athlete and assistant coach,” states Coach Nuss. “I look forward to building on the storied legacy of the men’s soccer program and helping the current student-athletes fulfill their academic and professional goals, just as I did in my time at CCC.”
The men’s and women’s soccer teams will kick off their seasons on the road on August 28, 2018 against NJCAA DII CCBC-Catonsville.
