Through five seasons at the helm, Jason Kilby has proven a successful track record as men's soccer coach at the Universty of Mary Washington. Kilby led North Carolina Wesleyan College as one of the top programs in the region for nine years. He is a native of nearby Culpeper, Va., and has returned to the Fredericksburg area to build the program into a national contender.
After leading UMW to a 7-7-3 mark in his first season on campus, Kilby led the Eagles to a 12-8-1 mark in 2012, advancing all the way to the CAC Championship. With a freshman-laden roster in 2013, the Eagles finished with a 12-7 mark, and advanced to the CAC semifinals in both 2014 and 2015.
In nine years at NC Wesleyan, Kilby led the Battling Bishops to a 120-43-13 overall record with a 43-7-6 mark in USA South Conference play. Kilby's impressive tenure at NCWC included back-to-back undefeated USA South Conference Championships in '04 and '05, as well as back-to-back undefeated regular seasons in '06 and '07.
In 2008, Kilby led NCWC to a 16-3-2 overall record, the USA South Tournament Championship, and the program's third consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance. His best season at the helm of the program, however, came in 2007 when he turned in a program-best 18-2-0 record, an undefeated regular season, an appearance in the NCAA Sweet 16, and a #2 national ranking for most of the fall.
Kilby spent four years as an assistant coach at Frostburg State University and was credited with much of his alma mater’s success. FSU won the AMCC Regular Season Championship each of those years and won the AMCC Tournament three times. FSU posted an overall record of 56-25-1 during his tenure on the coaching staff.
Professional soccer is also an accomplishment for Kilby as he has played in the USL and the USISL, as well as the Moseley Football Club in London, England. He currently holds a NSCAA Advanced National License, as well as a USSF “A” License.
