    Thought I'd put a list together of when each program has hired their current head coach so that it would give some perspective on who has been around the longest and how much turnover there actually is.

    I put in parenthese where a coach is from if not American to give a sense of how many foreign coaches there still are in DI soccer. It's hard to be exact because some bios are incomplete but as much as possible I didn't list a coach as foreign-born if they came here for HS or earlier and limited it to guys who came to the US as adults, for college or to work or play pro ball.

    UNKNOWN - 1
    Alabama A&M - Salah Yousif (Somalia or Ethiopia) – ???
    He coached A&M from 1977 till sometime in the 80’s. The first three seasons were in D-II (in which he won 2 NCAA D-II titles and finished second the other time) then in D-I since 1980. At some point he stopped coaching the team but started up again sometime the last few years.

    There is VERY little information about this guy on the web but apparently there was some sort of problem with the NCAA, for which he was later exonerated, that may have lead to him stepping down for awhile. He’s also an engineering professor at A&M so I assume he just kept teaching while he wasn’t coaching.

    Any help on this one would be appreciated.

    As always, please feel free to post any corrections.

    A few thoughts...

    *How many of you would have guessed Russ Fager, Joe Baum and Bob Montgomery as the answers for who had the longest tenure in D-I men’s college soccer coaching?

    I didn’t even know Rider had been D-I all that time, let alone that they’ve had the same coach since the mid 70’s or that he has the longest tenure.

    *For a sport that is supposed to have a lot of coaching security, man, has there been a lot of turnover the past few years! Sixty five coaches programs, roughly one third of the schools in D-I, have hired (or will hire) their coach the past five years and 31 – 15 percent – the past two years.

    *The number of foreign coaches, particularly those from the UK and Ireland, is still pretty high given the number of Americans who have played the game, and excelled at it, the past 30 years. Hard not to think that narrow-minded ADs here that accent and assume the coach knows more about the game than some American.

    That’s not to say these guys are bad coaches, but no other sport in college athletics has this many foreign coaches, not even close.

    *Interesting to see a lot more Hispanic coaches getting hired the past few years, particularly out west. That’s something you rarely saw in the past and a good sign that the college soccer umbrella is opening.

    *It’s pretty telling to look at what coaches were hired the same year, or close to each other, and compare who has done more with his program in that time.

    For instance, in 1991 three Big East coaches were hired at Villanova, Syracuse and St. John’s, none of which had much of a soccer tradition at the time. Dave Masur has turned SJU into a national power and won an NCAA title while the other two programs are still also-rans.

    *Surprised there aren’t more ex-MLS players serving as head coaches. By my count, Gelnovatch, Ashton, Kerr, Daly and Salcedo are the only former MLS players who are current head coaches in D-I and only Salcedo has been hired the past six years.

    There is actually a lot more turnover than listed since some programs have changed coaches two or three times during the last ten years. Butler has had at least three coaches, and I am sure there are some others.

    Any other programs with three or more coaches in the last 10 years ?

    UCLA comes to mind. (Sigi till 99, Saldana 99-01, Fitzgerald 02-03, Salcedo since then.)

    Saint Louis has also had three coaches during that time. I think Clarke coached their thru 99, Warming coached 97-00 and Donigan has been there since.

    There are may others and you're point is valid that there is actually more turnover than listed. But, I wasn't gonna do that much research and list all the programs' recent coaches.

    Next to UCLA, Butler is the only one I can find with 4 coaches in the last 10 years: Ian Martin (till 2000), Todd Bramble (2000), Joe Sochacki (2001-2005), Kelly Findley (2005)

    East Carolina, before being eliminated, had four.

    George Mason has had three in the last six years.

    Lafayette has had four in the last 11 years

    Butler has had four

    UCLA four had four

    South Florida has had three

    Iona has had four coaches in the last 10 years.

    St. Francis PA three in the last seven.

    Evansville three in the last five.

    Wisconsin three in the last 10.

    but we may have a winner - Appalachian State has had five coaches in the last 10 years.

    I am sure there are many, many more. If you probably calculated the number of coaching changes in the last 10 years it would almost be a one change for one school average. (some schools just way more than others)

    I don't have all of the schools that are new to D-I since I last did this, but here's an updated version. I'll try and do the "new" schools shortly.

    That Joe Luxbacher, who hasn't had a winning season since the Clinton Administration, is the third-longest tenured coach in D-I tells you all you need to know about how little Pitt cares about soccer. If they cared at all, they'd replace him.

    Yeah, to be clear, this is just how long each coach has been at his current gig.

    Many of these guys were at other D-I schools as head coaches before their current job.

    Some counter-intuitive numbers to me. I thought the average tenure was going down because there seemed to be a lot of turnover in the past few years. As it turns out I was not completely wrong as the percentage of coaches with that have been at their school for less than 5 years has increased from 33% to 39% percent. However, the average tenure has increase from 9.2 years to 9.3 years. The primary reason for this is that in 2006 you only had 1 coach with 30 years and now you have 3 including one that is closer to 40 than 30.
