UCLA assistant coach Mark Carr is entering his fourth season in Westwood after being hired on July 16, 2003. During his time in Westwood, the Bruins have won three Pac-10 titles and have played in the College Cup three times, making runs to the finals in 2004 and 2005.
A native of London, England, Carr came to UCLA from Northern California, where he held several coaching positions at both the high school and club levels. Carr graduated in 2001 with an International Marketing-Management degree with French from England's Bournemouth University, where he also played on the soccer team.
Prior to college, he was a member of the Charlton Athletic Youth Football Program from ages 15-19. While in England, he also played on several semi-pro teams, including Weymouth, Dorchester Town and Welling. He represented England Schools at the U-18 level and was captain of his state team.
"During the past three years, Mark has proven himself to be an integral part of this program," said head coach Jillian Ellis. "His chemistry with the players, professionalism and coaching ability is a large part of our success."
In addition to his work with the UCLA team, Carr works locally with the South Bay Force Soccer Club. He is also on the Region-IV ODP staff. He recently earned his USSF "A" License.
