Appointed the 11th head coach in the history of the Penn State men's soccer program on May 24, 2010, Bob Warming has made an immediate impact in his first three seasons at the helm of the Nittany Lions. The veteran coach guided the team to the Big Ten tournament championship game in 2010 and 2011, before winning a share of the regular season conference championship in 2012 and earning Big Ten Coach of the Year honors for his efforts. Following a pair of strong seasons to begin his career at PSU, Warming's 2012 squad accumulated a 3-1-2 conference record to capture the team's first Big Ten regular season championship in seven years. The Nittany Lions held opponents to just over one goal-per-game during the season, as they went unbeaten in their final four regular season conference contests.
The 2011 campaign presented a major milestone for Warming as he became the 31st NCAA Division 1 men's soccer head coach to capture 400 career victories after the Nittany Lions downed Florida International, 1-0, in the team's fourth game of the season. Penn State struggled through the Big Ten regular season, but hit its stride in the conference tournament, earning the distinction of being the first No. 7 seed to reach the title game.
The Nittany Lions switched roles from a high-powered offense in 2010 to a shutdown defense in 2011. The team allowed just 14 goals, the fewest since the 1977 squad surrended 12 scores. Rookie goalkeeper Andrew Wolverton set school records for the most shutouts in a season (12) and led the Big Ten in GAA (0.60) and save percentage (.821).
Warming led the Lions to 14 wins in 2011, the most by a PSU team since 2002, a Big Ten Tournament title game appearance, and to the program's first NCAA postseason victory in five years.
Penn State boasted one of the nation's most prolific offenses in 2010, totaling 144 points (45 goals, 54 assists) in 23 games. Junior forward Corey Hertzog posted the most productive season by a Nittany Lion in 55 years, recording an NCAA-leading 20 goals and 46 points. Senior midfielder Matheus Braga led the nation and shattered the Big Ten single season record in assists, registering 17. Both players earned NSCAA Second Team All-American honors.
Also successful in the classroom, Penn State received the NSCAA Team Academic Achievement Award in 2010, earning the honor with a 3.07 team GPA.
Warming's three-plus decades as a head coach have been signified by distinction, achievement, and success. The six-time finalist for national coach of the year and 2008 winner of the award, according to FieldTurf Tarkett, holds a lofty place in the NCAA record book, ranking sixth among active Division I head coaches and 15th in Division I history with 406 victories. Warming is also one of only two active coaches in Division I to take two different programs to the College Cup.
Warming, whose distinguished career spans 35 years, came to Happy Valley from Creighton University, where he took over a previously dormant program and developed it into a conference and regional power and national title contender.
In 14 total years in Omaha, served in two different stints (1990-94, 2001-09), Warming, the winningest coach in program history, led the Bluejays to 190 victories, seven Missouri Valley Conference regular season and tournament championships, 11 NCAA Championship appearances, and the 2002 College Cup. His teams proved nearly unbeatable at home, compiling a 107-18-15 record in Omaha. In recognition of his dominance in league play, Warming, a three-time Missouri Valley Conference Coach of the Year honoree, was named the MVC All-Centennial Team Coach in 2006.
An ardent believer in giving back through charitable works, Warming's 2009 Creighton squad won the community service award for performing over 1500 hours of volunteer activities, including working on Habitat for Humanity projects, reading to elementary school students, and helping out at hospitals. Warming has also served as the honorary chairman of the Boy Scouts of America for Nebraska and as the honorary chairman of the Omaha Children's Crisis Center annual fund raiser.
Warming has not only built successful teams on the field, but also assisted with the design, fundraising, and construction management of three collegiate soccer stadiums, including, most recently, the $13 million, 6,000-seat, state-of-the-art Michael G. Morrison, S.J., Stadium at Creighton. He and his winning teams helped fill the stands at Morrison Stadium, as Creighton led the MVC and ranked in the NCAA top 10 in attendance each of the past seven seasons.
In honor of significant contributions made to the athletic program at the university, Warming was inducted into the Creighton Athletics Hall of Fame in April 2011, becoming just the seventh head coach to earn the honor in its 43-year history.
In between his tenures at Creighton, Warming served as head coach at Saint Louis University, where he guided it to four Conference USA championships, three NCAA Championship berths, and the 1997 College Cup. His Billiken teams also finished ranked in the top 20 in all four seasons.
Warming also previously held head coaching positions at Old Dominion (1996), Charlotte (1982-88), Berry College (1977-81), and Transylvania University (1976). His career coaching record stands at an impressive 415-202-72 (.655).
Warming has also produced numerous professional prospects, as at least one of his players has been selected in every MLS SuperDraft or supplemental draft. He has seen a total of 28 of his players drafted since the league's inception in 1996. Most recently, John Gallagher was selected with the 30th pick in the second round of the 2013 MLS Supplemental Draft. In 2011, Corey Hertzog was selected by the New York Red Bulls with the No. 13 pick in the first round of the SuperDraft, while Drew Cost was a supplemental draft choice of Real Salt Lake.
A 1975 graduate of Berea College (Ky.), Warming was a four-sport varsity letterwinner, starring on the golf, swimming, tennis, and soccer teams. As a starting goalkeeper, he posted a 28-2-2 record. Warming also holds a master's of science degree in sport administration from Eastern Kentucky University.
Warming and his wife, Cindy, have four children - Emily, Bess, and twins Grant and the late Audrey.
On May 17, 2011, Adegboyega "Bo" Oshoniyi joined Penn State head coach Bob Warming's staff as an assistant. Oshoniyi has assumed a variety of coaching duties for the Nittany Lions, including working with the goalkeepers, and plays a key role in recruiting.
Oshoniyi helped the Nittany Lions capture the program's first regular season Big Ten title in seven years, as PSU garnered a 3-1-2 conference record in 2012. The Lions were staunch defensively, allowing just over one goal-per-game during the season as they went unbeaten in their final four regular season conference contests.
In his first season at Penn State, Oshoniyi helped tutor freshman goalkeeper Andrew Wolverton, the Big Ten leader in goals-against-average and save percentage. Wolverton also became the school's all-time single-season shutout leader with 12 a season ago.
Oshoniyi joined the Penn State staff after serving for two seasons as an assistant coach under Jay Vidovich at Wake Forest. Working primarily with the goalkeepers, he helped lead the ACC power to a total of 25 wins. In his first season at Wake Forest in 2009, the Demon Deacons posted a 17-4-3 record, captured the ACC regular season title, and advanced to the College Cup. Under Oshoniyi's tutelage that season, the Demon Deacon goalkeepers compiled a 0.77 goals against average and registered 10 shutouts.
Prior to his time at Wake Forest, Oshoniyi was an assistant at South Florida for one season. In 2008, the Bulls went 15-5-3, won the program's first BIG EAST tournament title, and advanced to the quarterfinals of the NCAA Championship.
As a collegiate player at Southern Connecticut State University, Oshoniyi was a two-time All-America goalkeeper, leading the Owls to two NCAA Division II National Championships and four straight New England Collegiate Conference titles. The Division II record holder for shutouts in a career with 50, he was named the Final Four Most Valuable Player twice and was honored with the Golden Boot Award, an award presented to the nation's top collegiate goalkeeper, following his senior season. Oshoniyi was inducted into SCSU Hall of Fame in 2009.
After graduation, Oshoniyi embarked on a professional career in the United States that spanned 12 years and included stints with two Major League Soccer teams. Chosen by Columbus in the inaugural MLS draft, he spent the 1996 season with the club, recording the first win in Crew history. Oshoniyi, the first African-American goalkeeper to start a game in the MLS, was also a member of the Kansas City Wizards from 2000-2006, winning two Western Conference titles (2000, 2004) and the MLS Championship in 2000.
Oshoniyi also played professionally with the USL's New York Centaurs (1995), Connecticut Wolves (1997), Charleston Battery (1998), and Atlanta Silverbacks (1999) and trained with Ajax Amsterdam of the Dutch national football league. He was also a member of the U.S. team that competed at the World University Games in 1993 and played with the U.S. National B team in 1994.
Oshoniyi holds a USSF National "A" license and has served as an assistant coach for the U.S. U-17 National Team, as well as a Region I Olympic Development evaluator. A highly sought after clinician, he has also been a staff member for the Kansas City Wizards Soccer Camps along with the SoccerPlus, Star, and No. 1 Goalkeeper Academies.
Oshoniyi also previously served as Director of Coaching at Harrisonville Soccer Club in Kansas City and was the head varsity girls coach at Saint Thomas Aquinas High School in Missouri and the boys' varsity assistant at Shelton High School in Connecticut.
Oshoniyi graduated from Southern Connecticut State in 1994 with a degree in marketing, finance and communications. He and his wife, Tippi, have a five-year old son, Xander, and a three-year old daughter, Londyn.
Chad Duernberger was added to the Penn State coaching staff in late June 2011, joining Bo Oshoniyi as a first-year assistant under head coach Bob Warming. Now in his third season, Duernberger maintains a role in team training and is involved in a variety of administrative duties.
Penn State captured a share of the Big Ten regular season championship in just his second season on the coaching staff, as the Nittany Lions compiled a 3-1-2 conference record in 2012. PSU held its opponents to just over one goal-per-game during the season as it went unbeaten in its final four regular season conference contests.
Duernberger arrived at Penn State after serving as the head men's soccer coach at the University of Charleston, a Division II institution located in the capital city of West Virginia, for the past three seasons. One of the youngest head coaches in the nation when he was hired in 2008, the 24-year-old Duernberger engineered an impressive and rapid turnaround after inheriting a Charleston program that went 0-17-0 the year prior.
The Golden Eagles improved to 4-11-2 in his first season before finishing 19-4-0 in 2009, the second best season in program history. Charleston posted a perfect 10-0-0 record in West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WVIAC) play and captured both the WVIAC regular season and tournament titles. Earning a berth in the Division II NCAA Championship, the Golden Eagles advanced to the quarterfinals, ending the season ranked No. 7 in the nation. In recognition of his success, Duernberger was named the NSCAA Division II National Coach of the Year in addition to receiving Atlantic Region and WVIAC Coach of the Year honors.
Duernberger built upon that foundation in 2010, leading Charleston to a 16-4-1 record, including a 10-1-0 mark in conference play, and again to the WVIAC regular season and tournament championships. Making their second consecutive NCAA Championship appearance, the Golden Eagles advanced to the third round of the Division II playoffs. Charleston reached as high as No. 4 in the NSCAA poll before ending the season at No. 10.
In his three years at the University of Charleston, Duernberger coached four NSCAA All-Americans, 10 NSCAA All-Atlantic Region honorees, and 12 First Team All-WVIAC selections.
Prior to his tenure at the University of Charleston, Duernberger served as an office graduate assistant at Marshall University from 2006-07. A native of Belle, W.Va., Duernberger was four-year starter for the Golden Eagles (2002-06), earning First Team All-WVIAC honors three times and all-region recognition in 2002.
