Men’s soccer head coach Jay Vidovic today announced the addition of Bryce Cregan to the coaching staff.

Born in Dallastown, Pennsylvania, Cregan attended Dallastown Area High School, where he was a four-star recruit and No. 2 prospect in the state of Pennsylvania, according to TopDrawerSoccer.com.

The Panthers are back from their second consecutive ACC Coastal Division title and second consecutive Elite Eight appearance in 2021. Pitt returns five All-ACC players a year with 52 goals and the top 63 assists in the program.
