DAVIDSON — Adam Denton has resigned as Davidson women’s soccer coach after six seasons, Director of Athletics Chris Clunie announced Thursday.

Denton coached the Wildcats to a 13-3-4 record this fall, which included the program’s most wins since 2009 and a program-best five Atlantic 10 victories. With a school-record 13 shutouts, the Wildcats reached the A-10 Tournament for the second time in three seasons and advanced to the semifinals.

Denton was named A-10 Coach of the Year in the pandemic-delayed spring 2021 season, when the Wildcats qualified for their first A-10 postseason and eventually reached the tournament final.

His Davidson teams were 36-53-18, including 32-25-14 the last four seasons.

A national coaching search will begin immediately.

Editor’s Note: a post from Denton on social media announced that he will be the next head coach for A-10 rival University of Richmond.
