Carlin-Voigt will enter his fourth season as UCLA's assistant coach and recruiting coordinator in 2015. Since arriving in Westwood, Carlin-Voigt has led the Bruins to a 39-11-13 overall record. His recruiting success and coaching ability helped catapult the Bruins all the way to the College Cup final last season. Carlin-Voigt is considered one of the best recruiters in the country and has brought in the nation’s number one recruiting class each of the past three seasons (2013, 2014 & 2015). Since his arrival in 2012, 11 Bruins have been drafted into MLS, highlighted by 2014 MAC Hermann Trophy winner, Leo Stolz. An invaluable member of the staff, Carlin-Voigt has been honored as one of College Soccer News’ top-15 assistant coaches in the country in each of the last two seasons (2013 & 2014).

In addition to his recruiting prowess, Carlin-Voigt is actively involved in all aspects of the UCLA soccer program, including player development, training, scouting, scheduling, soccer-specific fitness training, summer camp development and community outreach.

The former All-American at Kalamazoo College has helped lead the Bruins to the NCAA Tournament in each of his three seasons in Westwood. His work helped the Bruins secure the second seed in the NCAA tournament in 2014, just one year after being the top seeded team in the country in 2013. In his first season with the program in 2012, Carlin-Voigt helped UCLA secure the Pac-12 title for the second consecutive season.

Carlin-Voigt helped assemble three consecutive recruiting classes at George Mason that were ranked in the top 40 according to College Soccer News (2008-10). In 2008, he helped coach the Patriots to their first ever CAA Conference Championship and in 2011, he helped recruit a roster that led the CAA in All-Conference selections. Carlin-Voigt has helped recruit 12 players with U.S. Youth National Team experience since 2008 and seven that have gone on to sign professional contracts since 2009.

Carlin-Voigt has also studied training and coaching methods at professional clubs such as Chelsea, Fullham, Liverpool and Santos and observed the U.S. National Team preparations during the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. In the spring of 2012, he spent part of the preseason coaching with the Columbus Crew of Major League Soccer and has coached with the D.C. United Youth Academy Program as well, where he helped develop and train U.S. National Team Goalkeeper and DC United starter Bill Hamid.

Carlin-Voigt began his coaching career at his alma mater, Kalamazoo College, coaching there as an assistant coach for one season before becoming a volunteer goalkeeper coach for the men's team at Western Michigan University.

As a player at Kalamazoo, Carlin-Voigt earned NSCAA All-America honors and graduated with a bachelor's degree in economics, concentrating in international commerce. Considered one of the top goalkeepers in Division III soccer, he was a two-time team captain for Kalamazoo, a four-year starter and holds the Kalamazoo record for fewest goals allowed in a season.

After he graduated in 2004, Carlin-Voigt had a short stint with Cruz Azul Oaxaca of the Mexican Second Division that was cut short due to a knee injury. From 2001 to 2004, he played semi-pro soccer for the Kalamazoo Kingdom of the USL Premier Development League, where he set franchise records as a goalkeeper for wins and shutouts during the 2004 season. He also saw time on trial with Osnabruck of the German second division in 2006.
