“Martin’s third National Coach of the Year award caps a fairy-tale ending to the 2011 season,” according to the official award announcement from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America. “Not only did his Bishops win their second NCAA national title, but with the victory in the championship game gave Martin his 608th career win. That broke the record for career wins by an NCAA men’s coach, previously held by Joe Bean of Wheaton College. Martin is now 608-115-49 in 35 seasons, all as coach at Ohio Wesleyan.”
Congratulations, Coach Martin!
