He was more energetic, however, during International Play. He coached Arctic State, A small Division II school for three years from 1988-1991. In 1991, He was hired head coach of Riverside University, A Emerging Soccer powerhouse. He immediately made an impact there, leading them to a unprecidented 14 straight National Titles from 1996-2010. He is responsible for developing Nick Churchill to a seemingly perfected soccer player from 1999-2002.
