It's been a wild 24 hours for the Creighton soccer program. 

Expecting to make the NCAA tournament the Jays were snubbed from the postseason and then hours later Head Coach Elmar Bolowich resigned

This afternoon the Jays introduced its new head coach, former assistant Johnny Torres, a CU grad who says leading his alma mater is a dream come true. 

"To me it means a lot," Torres said. "Creighton is a very important part of my life, it shaped me in to the man I've become and I think it's a dream to say I'm doing the responsibilities as a head coach at my alma mater."

Torres played at Creighton in the mid-90's and is referred to as one of the greatest players in CU and Missouri Valley Conference history. 

The 2004 Creighton Athletics Hall of Fame inductee played a decade of professional soccer before coming back to CU 12 years ago as an assistant coach.
