He also founded programs at Cal State Los Angeles and Cal State San Bernardino, ran teams at Cal State Fullerton and Whittier College and might be the only man in history to coach teams in all three divisions of NCAA play, the MLS, the Olympics and the World Cup. All of that won him a lifetime achievement award last month at the National Soccer Coaches Assn.

Division III coaches whose credentials include head coaching stints with Division I men's teams at Cal State Fullerton, Santa Clara and Nevada Las Vegas.
