Soccer Team Names Bob Warming Coach

Bob Warming, the 2008 NCAA men’s soccer national coach of the year, has been named the 11th coach in the history of the Penn State men’s soccer team. He is leaving Creighton University where he coached for 14 years in two different stints with the school.

Warming has a career record of 383-180-64. Those 383 career wins are the sixth-highest among active coaches and the 15th-most in Division 1 history. He is also only one of two coaches in Division 1 history to win a College Cup with two different schools. He also won one as the head coach of Saint Louis University.

Penn State had been on a nationwide search for a new coach ever since former coach Barry Gorman resigned this spring. Gorman, who roamed the sidelines for 22 years at Jeffrey Field, posted a 266-158-42 record while winning 3 Big Ten Titles during his tenure. He is now working in the front office of FC Dallas, a Major League Soccer franchise.

The Lions have 17 lettermen returning which includes nine starters. Adding Warming should bring a new energy to the team which lost in the 1st round of the NCAA Championship tournament last year. A Big Ten title and run in the national tournament should not be out of the question for next year.
