Men’s and Women’s Soccer Coach Named CCAA Soccer
Coach of Year

CSUDH alum captures fourth award in 12 years

Carson, CA -- Cal State Dominguez Hills men's and women's soccer head coach Joe Flanagan (Class of ’91, B.A., Political Science) year and degree once he gets back to you, or, if no degree, then years attended and major) has been voted the CCAA Men's Soccer Coach of the Year by his fellow CCAA soccer coaches. Flanagan earns his fourth men's coaching award in 12 years at the helm of the men's soccer program.
Joe Flanagan"It's nice to be recognized by your peers for a job well done and for a year of good work," Flanagan says of his accolade, his first in four years. Then he added, before the CCAA championship games started Nov. 6, "I appreciate the honor, and hopefully we can bring home a championship or two with this Coach of the Year Award."

Unfortunately, his wish did not come true. The men’s team lost 1-0 in double overtime to Sonoma State—Sonoma’s first men’s soccer championship—and the women fell 4-3 after a comeback push that almost worked against UC San Diego. It would have been the women’s second consecutive CCAA championship and the mens’ fifth in seven years if they had won.

Flanagan also captured CCAA Men's Soccer Coach of the Year honors in 1995, 2000, and 2001, winning National Coach of the Year honors in 2000 after leading the Toros to a National Championship in a 2-1 four-overtime classic over host Barry University.

Overall, Flanagan holds a career 173-64-16 (.715) record as men's head coach, and a 56-22-10 (.693) ledger as women's head coach.

As a player at Dominguez Hills from 1986-89, Flanagan was a star mid-fielder who won All-CCAA and other honors. In 2000-01, Flanagan was honored as the Alumnus of the Year by the CSUDH Alumni Association for his outstanding achievements on and off the field, as well as for being an excellent ambassador to the surrounding South Bay communities.
