Kevin Kerr! (on the moon!)

On Thursday came the official announcement that Kevin Kerr will not be returning to the Riverhounds SC this season after his contract expired at the end of last season, as the club’s all-time leader in assists and minutes played has retired from playing professional soccer.

As expected, the response from Pittsburgh soccer community, and those who followed his career closely, came flowing in shortly after the club made the announcement and posted a video from Kerr himself.

Look for an additional post as Pittsburgh Soccer Now will take a look back at some of Kerr’s most memorable moments in Pittsburgh.

Kerr played for the Hounds from 2013-2019, and impressive seven season run as he goes into the club’s record books as its all-time assists leader, second in the team history in appearances and scored more goals than anyone in the history of Highmark Stadium.

John Krysinsky has covered soccer and other sports for many years for various publications and media outlets. He is also author of 'Miracle on the Mon' -- a book about the Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC, which chronicles the club, particularly the early years of Highmark Stadium with the narrative leading up to and centered around a remarkable match that helped provide a spark for the franchise. John has covered sports for Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, DK Pittsburgh Sports, Pittsburgh Sports Report, has served as color commentator on Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC broadcasts, and worked with OPTA Stats and broadcast teams for US Open Cup and International Champions Cup matches held in the US. Krysinsky also served as the Head Men’s Soccer Coach at his alma mater, Point Park University, where he led the Pioneers to the first-ever winning seasons and playoff berths (1996-98); head coach of North Catholic boys (2007-08), associate head coach of Shady Side Academy boys (2009-2014).
