Coach Mike Coven calls it a career

Brandeis’ legendary men’s soccer coach says goodbye after 44 seasons as one of the winningest coaches in NCAA Division III

Brandeis University men's soccer coach Mike Coven has announced his retirement after 44 years on the sidelines of one of the most successful athletics programs in NCAA Division III history. Coven, who guided his team to the Final Four of the NCAA Division III Tournament this season and won a national championship with the Judges in 1976, will officially retire on Dec. 31, 2016.

Coven ranks sixth all-time in Division III men's soccer coaching wins and is 10th among all NCAA soccer coaches regardless of division. Only five NCAA men's soccer coaches have had longer tenures than Coven, and only two of those also served their entire careers at one school.
