Two days after leading the program to its first national title in men’s soccer, Notre Dame’s Bobby Clark was named the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) Division I Coach of the Year.

The Irish defeated Maryland, 2-1, in Sunday’s national championship contest to conclude the campaign with a 17-1-6 record.

After suffering its lone loss of the season on Oct. 26 to Virginia (2-0), Notre Dame went 9-0-1 and outscored opponents 25-8 during that season-ending stretch.

During their five-game run in the NCAA Tournament, the Irish held a 14-4 scoring advantage over their competition.

It’s the first NSCAA National Coach-of-the-Year honor for Clark, who just completed his 27th season as a college head coach and his 13th at Notre Dame.

He boasts a career mark of 323-132-66 (.683) and is 170-69-41 (.680) at the helm of the Irish program.
