Paschal named ECCC men's soccer head coach
Ethan Paschal, a Poplarville native, has been named as the new East Central Community College head coach of the men's soccer program.
Paschal will follow long-time coach, Kenneth Thompson, who announced his retirement prior to the start of the 2020-21 season.
Paschal is no stranger to the game, nor the Mississippi Association of Community Colleges Conference (MACCC), as he has served as an assistant coach of both the men's and women's programs at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College in Perkinston for the previous four years.
The Poplarville High School graduate played two seasons with the MGCCC Bulldogs before graduating from Winston-Salem State University in North Carolina in 2017 with a degree in interdisciplinary studies.
Paschal looks to begin his time at East Central at the conclusion of the 2020-21 soccer season.
