EUGENE, Ore.–Lane Community College Athletic Director Greg Sheley has announced the hiring of Max Sampson as the Titans’ new head men’s soccer coach. Sampson takes over for Conner Cappelletti who recently resigned to take a coaching position in Ohio.

“I want to thank Athletic Director Greg Sheley and the search committee for the opportunity to take charge of the Lane Community College men’s soccer program. My leadership will reflect my passion and desire to help young people improve on the pitch and in the classroom,” said Sampson.
