[MEN'S COACHING  MOVES] Dave Brandt, who led Messiah to six NCAA Division I men's titles in 12 years, has been named the new Navy head men's coach.

Brandt compiled a remarkable 246-26-12 record in 12 seasons, winning six NCAA Division III National Championships. He ranks as the winningest coach in NCAA history with a winning percentage of .887 and his 2005 squad posted a 24-0-0 record, making it one of just five teams to have undefeated and untied seasons in all divisions since 1972.

Brandt stated a goal when he arrived for Messiah to be the "best place in the country to play college soccer." At Messiah, there was massive alumni involvement and tradition. His influence was found at the ticket gate as well, as the Falcons averaged a Division III-best 1,678 fans per game at home in 2008, a total that would have ranked Messiah 15th in Division I.

-- Former MLS player Kevin Anderson, an assistant at Boston College for the last three years, has been named Columbia's new head coach.

Anderson is no stranger to Morningside Heights.  Immediately after his collegiate career at Southern Connecticut State, he served as the Lions' assistant coach.  After playing professionally, Anderson returned to Columbia as the assistant men's coach and also as the acting head coach in 2006. 

"I am thrilled to have this opportunity," said Anderson. " I loved my time at Columbia.  I am excited to lead the resurgence of a program that I care deeply about and that has unmatched potential. I am inspired by the progress of Columbia Athletics over the past four years and I look forward to making the Columbia Men's Soccer program an integral part of that success."

-- Elvis Comrie, Holy Cross's first full-time men's coach, resigned. The former U.S. international joined Holy Cross in 1991. His teams posted an overall record of 125-158-34 over the last 18 seasons, including a 52-49-19 mark in Patriot League play. Comrie's squads won five Patriot League regular-season championships and advanced to the NCAA Tournament in 2002. He was also named the Patriot League Coach of the Year four times (in 1995, 1999, 2001 and 2007).
