Men’s Soccer Head Coach Bob Warming Announces Retirement

Head Coach Bob Warming announced his retirement Thursday after eight seasons at the helm of Penn State’s men’s soccer program, according to a press release.

The two-time national coach of the year arrived in State College after a successful second stint as head coach of Creighton University in 2010. Warming is the eighth-winningest coach in NCAA Division I history, recording a total of 461 wins and 28 conference championships over the course of his 40-year career. He has coached over 60 professional players, including Major League Soccer team captains Brad Davis and Jack Jewsbury.

Warming led the Nittany Lions to back-to-back Big Ten Championships in 2012 and 2013, and two NCAA sweet 16 appearances in 2010 and 2013.

“I am choosing to, and looking forward to, seeing and being there for my children and our grandchildren now whenever they need me,” he said in a release.

Warming’s final season ended on Nov. 6th, when the Nittany Lions were defeated 1-0 in overtime by Indiana in the quarterfinals of the Big Ten tournament. He will assist in the program’s search for its 12th head coach.
