Swede Cedergren joins Wildcats from Dartmouth
January 9th, 2012 2:07AM

TAGS:  college men


[KENTUCKY] Dartmouth associate head coach Johan Cedergren has been named the third head coach in the history of Kentucky men's soccer.

"Johan is one of the top assistant coaches in the nation and is going to be a dynamic head coach for our men's soccer program," UK Athletics Director Mitch Barnhart said. "He is a tireless worker, has great tactical knowledge of the game and has a proven track record of success."

A native of Solvesborg, Sweden, Cedergren helped lead Dartmouth to the NCAA Tournament in each of the last five seasons, an impressive feat at an Ivy League program without athletic scholarships and significant academic requirements. The Big Green reached the Sweet 16 in two of the last five years and won two Ivy League championships.
Cedergren came to the USA to play at University of Cincinnati after playing in Sweden for Kalmar FF. He helped lead UC to its first-ever NCAA Tournament appearance in 1998 and a final-season top-20 ranking.

Before beginning his coaching career, Cedergren spent eight years working in business, including time spent with U.S. Bank (2004-07) and the Johnson Investment Counsel (2001-04). While in Cincinnati, Cedergren coached with the Cincinnati Classics Soccer Club.
