CSUN’s Director of Athletics Shawn Chin-Farrell announced that Christine Johnson has resigned from the women’s soccer team and will not return as head coach.

Johnson first joined the Matadors in 2021 as an assistant coach prior to taking over as acting head coach. In June 2022 she was officially announced as the sixth head coach of the program’s history and spent the following two seasons at the helm.

This past season, CSUN finished last in the Big West at 1-5-4 in conference play and 1-13-5 overall throughout the year. The Matadors’ lone victory of the season came at home against Cal State Bakersfield when CSUN shut out the Roadrunners and scored a season high four goals.

Throughout the two seasons with Johnson as head coach, the Matadors own a disappointing 4-28-6 overall record.

The search for the next women’s soccer head coach is expected to begin immediately.
