Robert DeWitt is entering his second season as a part of the Belmont men's soccer staff, as head coach David Costa announced the addition of DeWitt to the Bruin staff as a graduate manager and director of operations on July 23, 2019.
In his first season at Belmont in 2019, the Bruins finished with a 5-12-2 (1-4-1 SoCon) record and their first-ever appearance in the tournament semifinal.
As a previous player under Costa at Xavier, DeWitt tallied Big East All-Academic Team selections in each of his four years as a Musketeer.
"During his playing career at Xavier, Robert was a model of hard work and character. He was committed to making the people around him better every day," Costa said. "When I accepted the position at Belmont, he was someone I knew that I wanted to work with."
DeWitt also worked as a volunteer coach at ID Camps and the Andy Fleming Soccer Camp during his time at Xavier. The Kansas native will manage day-to-day operations for the program, including community service, academics, team travel, and camps. He earned his bachelor of science in business administration from Xavier in 2019.
