Pa-Modou Kah’s departure from Pacific FC will be bittersweet for the CPL’s reigning Coach of the Year.
Not long after steering his side to a championship in December, Kah is opening a new chapter in his coaching career as he heads south of the border to take the helm of North Texas SC, the MLS Next Pro affiliate of FC Dallas.
Knowing the news would send ripples through the Canadian soccer community, Kah sat down with CanPL.ca’s Kristian Jack to explain it all in his own words, as well as to reflect on his two successful years on Vancouver Island.
By no means did Kah make such a decision lightly; of course, it’ll be difficult for him to leave Pacific at the height of their success. That said, perhaps departing on a high note is the best way to do it.
“It’s never easy to walk away from something we’ve built,” Kah admitted, “But sometimes you know that is the best way to also end — when you have been in a club and you’ve given your all, and you know, alright, you’re leaving with the head high, because I did what I promised them I will do, which is to win them a championship, not only for the club but also for Vancouver Island because we deserved it.
“Leaving on a high is always the best way, but sometimes you feel guilty because you think you’re leaving people behind and stuff like that. But for me, it was the right decision.”
