[AWARDS] Longtime North Carolina coach Anson Dorrance, who has led the Tar Heels to 20 NCAA titles, is the recipient of the National Soccer Coaches Association of America’s Honor Award for 2010. Dorrance was presented the award at the NSCAA's annual awards banquet Friday in Baltimore.
 
Dorrance, who coached such stars as Mia Hamm, April Heinrichs, Kristine Lilly, Cindy Parlow, Carla Overbeck and Heather O’Reilly at UNC, was the coach of the U.S. women’s national team that won the inaugural Women’s World Cup in 1991.

Dorrance has been an active member of the NSCAA's coaching staff, working with other coaches.
 
“I’ve always loved coaching coaches,” he said. “I’ve always tried to share what has worked for me with my colleagues. That’s something that’s always been part of my DNA.”

Dorrance has compiled a career record of 715-39-24 for a .934 winning percentage. He has earned NSCAA National Coach of the Year honors five times and is the only coach to claim that honor for both men’s and women’s play. He received the NSCAA’s Bill Jeffrey Award, presented to honor long-term service to intercollegiate soccer, in 2006.
