[NSCAA]
Bob Gansler, who led the USA to its first World Cup appearance in 40 years, and the late Bob DiGrazia, the long-time men's coach at the University of California, have been selected to the National Soccer Coaches Association of America's Hall of Fame. The two will be inducted into the Hall at the Awards Banquet on Jan. 15, as part of the 2010 NSCAA Convention, to be held in Philadelphia.

Gansler coached at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and worked an assistant to men's national team coach Walter Chyzowych in the 1970s and early '80s. He also coached the 1989 U.S. team that advanced to the U-20 World Cup semifinals. He became coach of the Kansas City Wizards in 1999 and guided them to an MLS Cup championship in 2000. He was the Wizards coach for eight seasons.

DiGrazia compiled a 202-133-39 record in 28 seasons (1953-80), making him the winningest coach in Cal soccer history. He led the team to its first two NCAA Tournament appearances (1960 and 1977). A winner of the NSCAA's Honor Award in 1983 and member of the Cal Hall of Fame, DiGrazia passed away in December 2006 at age 79.
