Horst Richardson receives United Soccer Coaches Honor Award

Horst Richardson, the sixth-winningest coach in men’s college soccer history, will be the 2017 recipient of the United Soccer Coaches Honor Award.

“I am honored and humbled by this recognition,” Richardson said. “For more than 50 years, I attended the annual banquet at the Convention, watching legends walk across the stage to receive the Honor Award and I never imagined I would be in their distinguished midst. I am very, very grateful to receive this award.”

Richardson, 76, had a 567-304-71 record at Colorado College, where he was hired as an assistant coach in 1965 before serving as head coach for nearly 50 years from 1966 until his retirement in 2014. He led the Tigers to 19 appearances in the NCAA Division III Tournament.

The award is the organization's highest honor and is given for his distinguished career in college athletics, tremendous service to the association and exemplary contributions to the coaching profession.
