The Drexel Dragons announced on Monday that they have named Carl Taylor as interim head coach. Taylor replaces Miranda Ervin, who was let go along with her full coaching staff, after two years with the program.
Taylor most recently was the head coach at Winslow High School in Atco, New Jersey, where he also taught health and physical education since 1984.
He has an extensive coaching resume, with notable stops in the NPF as an assistant coach for the Philadelphia Force (2008-2009) and as the head coach at Division III Rutgers-Camden, where he won four championships.
Taylor also coached women's basketball and volleyball at Rutgers-Camden, and was drafted in the 3rd round of the 1979 MLB draft by the Pittsbugh Pirates.
According to the press release and the school's website, it doesn't appear that Taylor has assembled a staff of any kind. Ervin's entire staff were apparently let go along with her.
The second week of the season is an odd time to have to replace a coach, both on the coach's and the school's part, but this is even odder thanks to the departure of the full staff. We will keep working on this story and update here with more information as we receive and confirm it.
