“I’m extremely excited to join the Davidson men’s soccer coaching staff,” commented Kroft. “The Davidson culture is a great fit for my philosophies, and the school has a history of excellence. I look forward to learning from such a knowledgeable coaching staff, and contributing to the success of the program and athletic department.”

“Phil is a wonderful addition to Davidson,” Spear said. “He’s ambitious and very focused on his coaching craft. His work ethic is sharp, he’s a problem solver, he’s great with planning and he has good demeanor with players. His experience with an MLS club will bring new perspectives. Video, scouting, recruiting, equipment, player support, off field operations are some examples where he will impact.”

Kroft, who played collegiately at Mount St. Mary’s, earned a Bachelor of Science degree in biology with a concentration in secondary education from George Mason University in 2012.
