Markovic takes over Highlanders

TAGS:  college men


[NJIT MEN] Cesar Markovic, who led both St. Peter's and Stony Brook to their first appearances in the NCAA Division I men's tournament, is the new head men’s coach at NJIT, replacing Pedro Lopes.

Markovic led Saint Peter’s to its first NCAA bid in 2003. Moving on to Stony Brook in 2004, he led the Seawolves to their first-ever NCAA men’s soccer bid in 2005 and returned to the postseason tournament again in 2009.

He completed his seven seasons at Stony Brook in 2010, posting a 10-7-3 overall record in his final campaign.

“From the start of this process, NJIT has shown a strong commitment to taking this soccer program to the next level in Division I," said Markovic. “While I am very happy to be here, I also feel a responsibility to create a tremendous soccer environment on campus and a culture of winning and exciting soccer at NJIT."

NJIT competes in the Atlantic Soccer Conference for schools that have no other men's soccer conference affiliation. It competes in the Great West Conference for other sports.
