Ian Lefebvre, who served as Linfield College men’s soccer coach and director of soccer for five seasons, has resigned his position, according to director of athletics Scott Carnahan.
Lefebvre cited the need to spend more time with his family as the reason for his departure. He lives in Beaverton while commuting between Linfield and his English and social studies teaching job at Skyview High School in Vancouver, Wash.
“Ian leaves Linfield on good terms,” said Carnahan. “We wish him the best and appreciate his contributions to helping build a successful soccer program, both on and off the field.”
In five years, Lefebvre compiled a 33-54-4 record as coach. His best season came in 2007 when he led the Wildcats to a 9-8-1 overall record. His teams finished no higher than sixth place in the Northwest Conference and dropped to seventh place this past fall.
A search is underway for a replacement. Interested candidates may submit applications for the part-time position through the college’s Human Resources website.
