Former Penn State Men’s Soccer Coach Bob Warming Announces Retirement

Former Penn State men’s soccer coach Bob Warming announced his retirement from coaching at the University of Nebraska Omaha Thursday. Warming left a legacy at Penn State as the men’s soccer coach from 2010 to 2017 and led the Nittany Lions to big accomplishments during his time in Happy Valley.

His 44-season-long career as a collegiate soccer coach is stacked with impressive records and awards that just brush the surface of his coaching abilities. Warming coached over 60 players who moved on to play soccer professionally, and in his career as a Division I coach, he racked up a total of 456 individual wins and 32 winning seasons.

While at Penn State, Warming was named Big Ten Conference Coach of the Year twice in 2012 and 2013 and is a two-time national coach of the year. He led the Nittany Lions to win two Big Ten regular-season titles and brought the team to four NCAA Tournament appearances, where they made it to the Sweet Sixteen twice.

Warming also played a huge role in organizing the annual Mack Brady match, soccer clinic, and goalkeeper fund to honor soccer fanatic and Penn Stater at heart Mack Brady, who unexpectedly passed away in 2012 at the age of nine.

After the 2017 season, Warming announced his retirement from Penn State. Just a few months later in 2018, Warming came out of retirement to take on the position of head coach for Omaha where he remained for four years.
