Sanchez moves down Rockies to Boulder
December 27th, 2011 1:44AM

TAGS:  college women


[COLORADO] Danny Sanchez, who led Metro State to NCAA Division II championships in 2004 and 2006, has left Wyoming to move down the Rockies to Colorado, where he will replace Bill Hempen as women's head coach.

Sanchez, 42, just completed his fourth season Wyoming.  In a coaching career that has spanned 17 years, his teams at Wyoming, Metro State and Mesa Community College, where he coached both the men’s and women’s programs, his teams have compiled an impressive 267-60-23 record.
“Coach Sanchez possesses an exceptional level of integrity along with a dynamic passion for soccer that will resonate well with our student-athletes on many levels,” Colorado Athletic Director Mike Bohn said.  “His coaching style, strong leadership characteristics, and regional and national coaching accomplishments are a perfect fit for our university in providing a solid foundation for long-term success."

Hempen was just the second head coach in CU’s program history but stepped down from the position in November after 11 seasons in Boulder.

Austin Daniels piloted the program its first five years of existence.
