TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) - Florida State University soccer head coach Mark Krikorian is stepping away from the program.

Krikorian made the surprising announcement Tuesday afternoon. During his 17 years as coach, he led the Seminoles to three national titles: 2014, 2018 and 2021.

Krikorian said although FSU offered him a “generous contract,” his decision to leave the program was not based on money.

“I want to thank Dave Hart and Kim Record for bringing me to FSU and teaching me how to be a leader and a professional. Coach Bowden for showing me the importance of being a gentleman. I’d like to acknowledge Monk Bonasorte for his undying loyalty to FSU and for the constant support that he gave to FSU soccer,” Krikorian wrote in his farewell email. “I would also like to thank all of the players and staff that worked so hard over the years to help create a program that has been consistently at the top of D1 women’s soccer. Finally, I want to wish the team, the school and my fellow coaches continued success as you move forward in a new direction.”

This is a developing story. WCTV’s sports team is working to gather more information.
