Three-time Conference Coach of the Year (1999, 2014, & 2015)
Career Head Coaching Record (through 2016): 92-69-17 (9 seasons)
Paul Hogan is in his seventh year as Coastal Carolina's head women's soccer coach. In nine seasons as a head coach, Hogan has posted a 92-69-17 record, including a 35-16-7 record in three seasons at Allegheny College (1998-2000) and 57-53-10 record in six seasons at Coastal (2011-present).
In the program's first season in the Sun Belt (2016), Hogan led the Chanticleers to a season-place finish in the regular season and reached the Sun Belt Tournament Championship. Coastal won 12 games for the second straight season (12-6-3) and was 6-2-2 in the league. Daniella Famili and Amber Adams were named to the All-Sun Belt first team while goalkeeper Becca Austin was voted to the second team. Famili went on to be named first team All-South Region by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America to become the first Chanticleer to earn first team all-region while Adams was named to the third team to mark Coastal's third and fourth players to be named all-region. (With Kacey Kelley in 2014 and Famili and Adams in 2016, the only three Chants to be named NSCAA All-Region have been under Hogan's tutelage.)
For a second straight season in 2015, Hogan was named the Big South Coach of the Year as he and the Chanticleers matched the program's progression from last season by wining 12 games (12-7-1) to post their best campaign in seven years. The Chanticleers finished in second place in the Big South during the regular season with a 7-2-1 league record, an identical Big South finish to the 2014 campaign. After defeating UNC Asheville 5-0 in the Big South quarterfinal, for the second consecutive season, Coastal advanced to the Big South semifinals but eventually fell in the semifinal match. The 12 victories provided the fourth straight double-digit win season and were also the most for Coastal since 2008. Under Hogan, freshman Kayla Christian become the fourth Chanticleer to garner the Big South Freshman of the Year award. Five other Coastal players collected all-conference honors.
Hogan won his first Big South Coach of the Year honor in 2014 as he and the Chanticleers took more steps forward in the program's progression. After tying for second place in the Big South during the regular season with a 7-2-1 record, its best finish since 2010, Coastal notched its first conference tournament win since 2008 with a 2-0 shutout of UNC Asheville, before falling in a tight 2-1 semifinal match against High Point to finish 11-8-2. Hogan became the third different Chanticleer leader to earn the conference's top coaching honor. Senior forward Kacey Kelley also made history individually under Hogan, becoming the first Chant to earn NSCAA All-Region honors and the second to be named a Big South Player of the Year as she garnered the attacking award. Five other Coastal players collected all-conference honors. As a team, CCU was second in the Big South during the regular season in fewest goals allowed, not surrendering more than one in any of the 11 conference games, while ranking third in goals scored. The Chanticleers also continued to excel against the league’s best, posting a 1-0 shutout of Liberty on Senior Day to mark the third straight season in which Coastal has handed the league's eventual regular-season champion its only conference defeat.
In 2013, Hogan guided Coastal to a 10-8-2 record, giving the Chanticleers consecutive double-digit victory campaigns for the first time since 2008. The Chanticleers tied for fourth in the Big South, along the way ending Radford's 19-game regular-season conference unbeaten streak with a 1-0 victory on October 23. The squad also set a new CCU record with 11 shutouts in their 20 games, while allowing just 15 total goals to establish a new program mark for the second year in a row. Seven Chants earned All-Big South honors, including a total of four on the first and second team, tied for most in the conference.
Prior to the start of the season, Hogan served as a member of the USYSA Region III Olympic Development staff during the summer.
Coastal made a dramatic improvement under Hogan during his second season in 2012, notching eight more victories than the previous year. The Chanticleers finished 10-9 overall and went 7-4 in Big South play, including a perfect 5-0 mark at home in which it outscored its opponents 12-1 and knocked off three teams who were in first place at the time. The Chants decreased their goals allowed from 40 in 2011 to a school-record 20 and posted eight shutouts, the second-most in school history while surrendering the fewest shots of any Big South team. Hogan coached three Chants to All-Big South honors, including Fia Jonsson, who was tabbed the league's Freshman of the Year.
Hogan's first season saw Coastal finish with a 2-15-2 record as the Chanticleers fell short in numerous one goal games. Coastal piled up a season-high three goals in a rout of VMI and backed up its performance with a thrilling 1-nil defeat of UNC Asheville. Under Hogan's direction, nine different Chants found the back of the net with three players doing so multiple times. The season also saw Alyssa Clark earn second team All-Big South honors for her standout defensive efforts along with her team-high three assists. Additionally, Cami Skladany garnered Big South Defensive Player of the Week plaudits for the week of Aug. 30 after she made a stellar defensive save against Georgia Southern.
Hogan was announced at CCU's fourth head women's soccer coach in Chanticleer history on Thursday, Jan. 5, 2011.

His Gator teams finished no lower than third in the final NCAC standings and his 1999 squad won a school-record six conference matches, a feat duplicated by the 2000 team, earning Hogan conference Coach of the Year accolades with his student-athletes earning NCAC Newcomer and Offensive Player of the Year postseason honors.
Hogan made the leap to head coach in April 1998 from Duke where he was an assistant for the 1996 and `97 seasons. He assisted the Blue Devils to a two-year record of 28-11.
