WACO, Texas – Paul Jobson will no longer be the head coach of Baylor Soccer. As of Tuesday evening, he has decided to part ways with the program after nine years as head coach and a further five as associate head coach before that.

“After much prayer and consideration, I am stepping down as the Head Women’s Soccer Coach at Baylor University,” Jobson said. “I have enjoyed 14 amazing years at Baylor, which began as an assistant to my wife Marci and concluded with the last nine years as head coach. I have been blessed to mentor more than 100 amazing young women, but just as Marci and I felt God calling us here at the end of 2007, He is now calling me into something new.”

After joining Baylor in 2008 as an associate head coach under Marci Jobson, his wife, he became a co-head coach in 2013. In 2015 Marci stepped away from the program and Paul took over as the lone head coach.

During his time with Baylor Soccer, the Bears made it to the NCAA Tournament four times including the Sweet 16 once (‘12) and the Elite 8 twice (’17 and ’18). He also helped lead the Bears to two Big 12 Tournament titles, under Marci in ’12 and again in ‘17. They also won the Big 12 regular-season title in 2018, which helped Paul earn Big 12 coach of the year honors as well.

Paul Jobson’s final record as Baylor Soccer’s head coach is 97-57-26 (40-28-12 in the Big 12) which sees him leave as Baylor Soccer’s winningest coach.

“The Jobson family is special to Baylor,” Baylor Director of Athletics Mack Rhoades said, “Paul and Marci have embodied our commitment to Preparing Champions for Life. Together, they've made a significant impact on Baylor University and the Waco community. We wish Paul, Marci and their four sons, Miller, Grey, Nash, and Jett, the best as they embark on the next phase of their lives. I am excited to see where God leads them next."

While Baylor’s press release provides no official reason for the move at this time, it is safe to say that there is a wealth of respect for Paul Jobson around Baylor, and he will no doubt always do what is best for him and his family.

Baylor’s search for Jobson’s replacement will be “national” and with Mack Rhoades at the helm, the program will most likely remain in good hands.
