Carlin-Voigt will enter his third season as UCLA's assistant coach in 2014 after spending five seasons as the top assistant coach and recruiting coordinator at George Mason from 2007-11. Carlin-Voigt is considered one of the best recruiters in the country and while at George Mason, was responsible for day-to-day operations of the program, including field player development, scouting, attendance marketing, scheduling, sports performance and academic affairs. Carlin-Voigt is also considered one of the few soccer fitness coaches in college soccer.
In his first season at UCLA in 2012, Carlin-Voigt helped guide the Bruins to their second straight Pac-12 championship and an appearance in the NCAA Tournament. During his second season in 2013, Carlin-Voigt spearheaded the efforts to bring in the No. 1 ranked recruiting class to Westwood and helped lead UCLA back to the postseason as the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament. This past offseason, Carlin-Voigt once again led the efforts to bring in the consensus No. 1 ranked recruiting class for the second straight year. Additionally, Carlin-Voigt was the only assistant coach from the Pac-12 Conference to be named to the list.
