MOST COMMENTED

[PENN STATE MEN] Barry Gorman became the latest big-name men's coach to step down when he resigned as Penn State's coach after 22 years in order to "pursue other professional opportunities."

"Personally, at this time in my career, it is time to move on and explore other challenges and opportunities," said Gorman. "It has been a tremendous honor and privilege to have been the Penn State men's soccer coach. I owe great debt of gratitude to many people for their guidance, help and support over the course of my tenure."

Gorman is the program's all-time winningest coach, having compiled a 266-158-42 overall record. He led the Nittany Lions to three Big Ten championships. Gorman's teams made 13 NCAA Tournament appearances, advancing four times to the round of 16 and twice to the national quarterfinals.

Gorman, a former NSCAA president, served as an assistant under legendary Walter Bahr for two years before being hired as Penn State's 10th head coach in program history in 1988.
 
Gorman played in Irish Football League in his native Northern Ireland before coming to play in the American Soccer League.

Gorman served as an assistant coach at Lock Haven College, coached ELCO High School and Division II power Davis & Elkins College before joining the Nittany Lions.

    Phooey on JoPa. I'm talkin' about BaGo! State College will miss Barry and his incredible hospitality, knowledge of the game, and wicked sense of humor. He is a one man right of passage for anyone taking NSCAA licenses! God bless you BaGo! charlie
