49ers add assistant soccer coach

Charlotte 49ers women’s soccer coach John Cullen has hired former Pfeiffer head coach and 49ers women’s soccer standout Sarah Judy Denton as an assistant coach on his staff. Denton joins second-year assistant coach Heather Dittmer on the 49ers staff.

“I’m delighted to bring on Sarah Denton as an assistant coach,” Cullen said. “She brings all the attributes you look for in a coach, vibrant, passionate, great coaching experience and playing background. Her teams have always been successful and well prepared."

Denton has spent the past three seasons as at Pfeiffer and compiled a 40-21-4 record. In 2008, Pfeiffer won the Conference Carolinas tournament and made the program’s first-ever NCAA Tournament appearance. She was named coach of the year in 2007.
