Sasnett leaving Darton St. after nine seasons

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Darton State men's soccer coach Bart Sasnett is leaving the program after nine seasons.

He will take over at Daytona State, and become the first head coach in Falcon history.

Sasnett led the Cavs to six region titles in nine seasons, and three national tournament appearances. During his time in Albany, the Cavaliers won nearly 75% of the games Sasnett coached.

"We've had 250 or so players come through here, and gotten a lot of those guys placed at Division I, II, III, or NAIA schools. Some of them went professional as well," Sasnett says. "For me, watching those players develop, that's the proudest thing."

He will take over the upstart men's soccer program at Daytona State, which will play its first season in 2016.

Sasnett says he's excited to build a program from the ground up.

"It's really been a dream of mine since I got into coaching to build a program from scratch, from the inception, and being able to create history, and develop a brand new program and brand new philosophy and ideas," he says.

Sasnett says he isn't sure what the future holds for the Cavaliers soccer program.
