HEAD COACH Thomas Chestnutt Head Coach 1st SEASON

homas Chestnutt became Florida International University’s second women’s soccer head coach on February 10, 2007. Chestnutt comes to FIU from Fresno State University, where he had served as the school’s assistant coach since 2004. Fresno State saw drastic improvements in its women’s soccer program during Chestnutt’s tenure, including trips to the NCAA Tournament, bolstered recruiting, academic success, and conference titles.

T

In 2005, the Bulldogs won their first Western Athletic Conference (WAC) Tournament Championship, earning an NCAA Tournament berth for only the second time in school history and finishing with their best record since 2000. This past season Fresno State earned the WAC regular season championship for the second time in program history, won road games against top-20 opponents Florida and BYU, and finished the season 13-5-3. The squad did not allow a goal in conference and tournament play. In addition, the team posted 16 shutouts during the season.

Alma Mater: University of Dayton

In addition to guiding the team on the field, Chestnutt played a major role in the Bulldogs’ recruiting efforts and was responsible for overseeing the team’s academic success. The Bulldogs flourished in both areas, as they placed 13 student-athletes on the 2005 WAC Academic All-Conference Team and garnered their first ever regionally-ranked recruiting class in 2005. Prior to his arrival at Fresno State, Chestnutt worked with the University of Florida women’s soccer team from 2001-04, while working toward his Ph.D. in environmental engineering. The Gators went to the 2001 Final Four and advanced to the NCAA Quarterfinals as the No. 3 seed in 2003. Despite the rigors of working toward the Ph.D. and working on the UF women’s staff, Chestnutt was also the head coach of Florida’s men’s club team from 2000-03. Chestnutt guided the UF club team to five major tournament victories in that span, a feat that had only been accomplished once in the previous 15 years. His teams finished 2-0-2 against varsity programs over that time, including a tie against 2001 NCAA Division II National Champion Tampa, and were ranked No. 1 and No. 2 in the NIRSA Southeast in 2001 and 2002. The former center midfielder also possesses a wealth of club coaching and camp experience. Chestnutt has served on the Bullard F.C. Board of Directors and coached the Bullard F.C. U17-U18 girl’s team in Fresno, Calif., since 2005. He coached the U14 and U15 Boys Gainesville Select Soccer Club Team from 2001-03, the Tampa Bay Heather U13 Team in 1998 and was a trainer for the Gainesville Select/Leg A-Z Youth Clubs from 2001-04. Chestnutt also played a part in setting up and coaching camps at Fresno State, Florida, Santa Clara University, and Clemson University. Chestnutt played collegiately at the University of Dayton for three years, earning his bachelor’s degree in biochemistry with minors in German, biology and chemistry in 1995. He continued his playing career with the Tampa Bay Cyclones in 1995 and 1996 before spending 1997 with FSC Lohfelden in the German Fourth Division. Chestnutt returned to school in 1998 and earned his master’s degree in engineering mechanics in 2001 from Florida. Chestnutt is scheduled to earn his Ph.D. in May. He holds a USSF National “A” License, a NSCAA Goalkeeping II Diploma and has been on the CYSA North Olympic Development Program (ODP) staff since 2005. He currently serves as an FSYA ODP staff coach. In addition, Chestnutt was on the Florida Youth Soccer Association state staff in 2003-04. Chestnutt and his wife Amanda live in Kendall.

T HIS IS FIU

Florida International University — Miami’s public research university — is one of America’s most dynamic institutions of higher learning. Since opening in 1972, FIU has achieved many benchmarks of excellence that have taken other universities more than a century to reach. With a nationally renowned faculty recognized for their outstanding teaching and cutting-edge research and a student body from throughout the United States and more than 130 foreign countries, FIU continues to grow and excel. LATEST N EW S On March 23, 2006, the Florida Board of Governors voted to approve the creation of a School of Medicine at FIU. The University plans to welcome its first medical school class in the fall of 2008. H IS TO RY A N D GROWT H FIU opened for classes in 1972 with 5,667 students—the largest opening day enrollment in U.S. collegiate history. Today it has close to 38,000 students, almost 1,000 full-time faculty and 113,000 alumni, making it the largest university in South Florida. PROG R A MS The University offers more than 200 bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral programs in 17 colleges and schools: Accounting, Architecture, Arts and Sciences, Business Administration, Computing and Information Sciences, Education, Engineering & Computing, Health, Health and Urban Affairs, Honors, Hospitality and Tourism Management, Journalism and Mass Communication, Law, Medicine, Music, Nursing, Public Health and Social Work/Policy and Management. FACU LTY Ninety-five percent of the University’s full-time faculty holds doctorates or the highest degrees in their field.

RE S E ARCH FIU emphasizes research as a major component of its mission. Sponsored research funding from external sources for the year 2004-2005 totaled nearly $80 million. The University is ranked as a Research University in the High Research Activity category of the Carnegie Foundation’s prestigious classification system. AT H L E T I CS FIU’s intercollegiate athletic teams compete in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I, the nation’s most competitive college sports division, the Sun Belt Conference and Conference USA. Seventeen sports programs are offered, which include football (Division I-A), basketball, track & field/cross country, soccer, baseball, volleyball, softball, golf, tennis and swimming & diving. T H E M AS COT When FIU first opened its doors in 1972 the Sunblazer was its mascot. The Sunblazers represented FIU for 14 years, but in 1987, University President Dr. Modesto A. Maidique promoted a campaign to replace the Sunblazer with the Golden Panther, a mascot that better represented FIU and its ties to Florida’s natural environment. The University also adopted new school colors – blue and gold. In 2001, the FIU Golden Panther got a makeover, and the result was a “meaner, leaner” predator.

GREATER M I AMI

With a year-round tropical climate, exciting attractions, professional and intercollegiate sports teams, art, history, museums and all of the nature parks and education one could ask for, GREATER MIAMI AND THE BEACHES has become a superstar of the world’s travel destinations. Due to its location in a tropical climate, Greater Miami and the Beaches has many activities and attractions that differ from most vacation spots. This tropical cosmopolitan city boasts some of the world's most beautiful beaches and ecological wonders, such as the Everglades, right next to one of the world's most vibrant urban centers.

As Director of Student Athlete Academic Services, Shirelle Jackson manages the center and supervises a dedicated group of academic coordinators, a reading and writing specialist, support staff and numerous tutors hired to assist all student-athletes with their academic courses. The role of the SAAC staff is to help the student-athletes develop proper learning habits, as well as to develop learning plans and monitor their progress. The SAAC is an academic environment, where a friendly, academic atmosphere is encouraged. The center is open six days per week (including evenings) to accommodate the needs of the student-athletes. The Student Athlete Academic Center has areas for formal, “monitored study” as well as informal study areas. Individual “study carrel” areas are provided as well as a library, classroom, conference room, computer laboratory and open study areas. ACADEMIC ADVISING Coordinators of Academic Support are assigned to each team and offer assistant and individualized counseling. This includes but is not limited to: academic advising for course selection each semester, personal and career counseling, monitoring academic progress and class attendance, monitoring adherence to study hall assigned hours and serving as a liaison between the athletic and academic community. They meet periodically with each student throughout the semester in order to monitor the academic progress. Weekly meetings are mandatory for students who have proven academic difficulty. The Coordinators work closely with the coaches and keep them apprised of the student-athletes’ academic status while assuring that all academic requirements for FIU and NCAA eligibility are met.

Under these rules, alumni and friends can be categorized as "representatives of Florida International University athletic interests."

General and subject-specified tutoring is available in the Student Athlete Academic Center. Core subjects, such as math, English and science are the primary focus of the tutorial services; however, tutoring is also available in advanced level courses such as calculus, accounting or subject areas which are known to cause students difficulty. Graduate students are normally hired as tutors in subject areas for which they have expertise. A schedule of tutoring hours is maintained on the SAAC bulletin board and students are urged to sign up in advance for assistance. Students participating in tutoring are required to bring in the course syllabus and text along with the assignments for which they seek assistance. In addition, a trained ESOL specialist provides student-athletes for whom English is a second language with tutoring and assistance.

hile there are 31 NCAA conferences that sponsor multiple sports, the Sun Belt is one of only eleven to participate in the Bowl Championship Series (BCS) and Division 1A football, now known as the Football Bowl Subdivision. The Sun Belt was formed in 1976 with six members competing in four men’s sports, and today comprises 13 institutions of higher learning while sponsoring 19 championship sports for men and women. The conference has influence in a region that carries significant importance, as its membership is spread out over eight states that represent 113 total electoral votes. Thus, if you carry the Sun Belt, you are almost half way to the White House! The Sun Belt Conference enters its 32nd season in 2006-2007 with a proud history of athletic and academic success. The conference sponsors 10 women’s sports - basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, softball, swimming and diving, tennis, indoor and outdoor track and field, and volleyball; and nine men’s sports – baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, swimming and diving, tennis, and indoor and outdoor track and field. Each of the 19 sports has seen numerous team and individual accomplishments, and 12 Sun Belt Conference schools are currently graduating its student athletes at a rate higher than their school’s student body. All Sun Belt schools are committed to excellence in the 21st century, and facility upgrades and expansion are occurring on virtually every campus. Because of its status as a member of the Division 1-A football coalition, the Sun Belt Conference has a permanent seat on the NCAA’s 16-member Board of Directors. As a result, the conference has a crucial voice on some of the most pressing issues in college athletics and will always have a role in the implementation of any future NCAA legislation and guidelines. The conference continues to utilize television to grow and promote the league. Adding volleyball, baseball and softball to the conference’s television package has resulted in more national and regional television exposure for the league than at any time in its history. The conference’s regional television package enables live telecasts of Sun Belt events to reach over 20 million households. Additionally, ESPN televised the conference’s men’s basketball championship game for the 27th straight season in 2007, marking its longest affiliation with any conference in the country. The Sun Belt Conference has partnered with XOS Technologies, Inc. to deliver a full-service, customized, public and premium web site to provide fans with a broad range of real-time information and content about the conference’s athletic teams. The Sun Belt is one of few conferences

28

in the nation to provide video highlights and features on its website from each of the league’s respective championships. This technology serves as a great recruiting tool for schools by enabling anyone in the world with internet access to view the conference’s championship events, and fans in five different countries viewed the conference’s most recent soccer championship. Prominent Sun Belt alumni include United States Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice (Denver), NFL Hall of Fame football player “Mean” Joe Greene (North Texas), Arizona Diamondbacks AllStar baseball players Mike Lowell (Florida International) and Luis Gonzalez (South Alabama), former member of the United States Senate and House of Representatives John Breaux (LouisianaLafayette), LPGA Hall of Fame member Pat Bradley (Florida International), country music superstar Tim McGraw (Louisiana-Monroe), and actor Andy Garcia (Florida International). The conference’s first 30 years have also produced numerous individual national champions along with Olympic track medalists including Earl Bell, Tom Hill and Al Joyner (Arkansas State), Hollis Conway (Louisiana-Lafayette), and Tayna Lawrence (Florida International). Old Dominion’s Anne Donovan received the Naismith Trophy recognizing the nation’s top women’s basketball player in 1983, helped the United States win the Olympic gold medal in 1984, and helped the Lady Monarchs capture the national championship in 1985 (one of eight women’s Final 4 appearances by Sun Belt schools: Old Dominion - 1983, 1985; Western Kentucky – 1985, 1986, 1992; Louisiana Tech – 1994, 1998, 1999). Sun Belt teams have also participated in the men’s NCAA Final 4 (UNC-Charlotte in 1977), the College World Series (LouisianaLafayette in 2000), the women’s College World Series (Louisiana-Lafayette in 1993, 1995, 1996, 2003), and had 10 players selected in the first round of the NBA Draft. The Sun Belt Conference is led by Commissioner Wright Waters, who is in his eighth full year as commissioner. He was named the conference’s fourth commissioner in February of 1999 following the tenures of Vic Bubas (1976-1990), Jim Lessig (1990-1991), and Craig Thompson (1991-1998). The league’s annual all sports champion is awarded the Vic Bubas Cup, named after the conference’s first commissioner. The conference office has been headquartered in downtown New Orleans since 2000 after moving from suburban Metairie, La., where it had been based since 1991. Prior to moving to the “Big Easy,” the league was based in Tampa, Fla., from 1977-1991. The original conference office was located in Charlotte, N.C., from 1976-77.
