DiIanni named NSCAA Coach of the Year
Grand Valley State University women’s soccer head coach Dave DiIanni was recently named the 2013 National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) Women’s National Coach of the Year after his team won its third NCAA Division II title in five seasons.
GVSU (24-0-1) notched three of the second-best, single-season marks in Division II history with a .840 shutout percentage, a .159 goals-against average and a 13-game shutout streak.
Five of Dilanni’s players earned a spot on the Daktronics NCAA Division II Women’s Soccer All-America Team, and four of which were first team selections.
DiIanni’s career record of 221-18-18 is good enough for the third-highest winning percentage (.895) in NCAA history.
