Joe Kirt Assistant Coach
The 2016 season was Joe Kirt's 10th season at Tennessee and fifth as an assistant coach working under head coach Brian Pensky. Kirt is the longest tenured coach on the UT soccer staff and has played an integral role in the program's success.
Kirt's main duties include the training goalkeepers, as well as coordinating travel, recruiting and soccer camps. From late December of 2011 through Pensky's hiring in late January of 2012, he also handled all aspects of the program as UT made a head coaching transition.
Jonathan Morgan Assistant Coach
Jonathan Morgan completed his first season on Rocky Top in 2016 after being named an assistant coach for Tennessee in January of 2016 following a nine-year stint at the University of Maryland.
In his first season with the Vols, Morgan helped the program continue its strong reputation on the defensive side of the ball in 2016. UT posted eight shutouts and a 1.45 goals against average on the year en route to a 11-9-1 overall record and a 5-5-1 mark in SEC play.
