This is a Cause and Effect type question.

Per author's conclusion:
Cause: New coach was never a member of a collegiate soccer team'
Effect: Hence, will not be able to build a successful program

Assumption should support the above causal relationship in following ways:
1) for given cause there is given effect
2) for no given cause there is no given effect
3) there is no other cause for given the given effect

Answer: D (for given cause there is given effect)
