Omaha Marian soccer coach Ed Dudley is stepping down after 17 years with the Crusaders.
He will be a soccer assistant and continue his duties as the school’s strength coach. One of his former players, 2002 Marian graduate Amy Price Robinson, will take over as head coach.
“It has been a great 17 years,’’ Dudley said. “I love Marian and will continue on here with what I enjoy most — training young women to excel in athletics.’’
Dudley led the Crusaders to eight Class A championships and was named The World-Herald’s girls high school coach of the year in 2012. He guided Marian to a 19-1 record last year and a state title.
“Marian’s soccer program has been in good hands with Ed,” Marian Athletic Director Rochelle Rohlfs said. “I am confident that Amy will add a fantastic new dimension to the program along with Ed’s expertise.’’
Price Robinson was the goalkeeper on four consecutive state championship teams and was an All-American at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. She set the state high school record for most shutouts in a season (21) in 2001.
