Seamus McFadden: USD’s ageless soccer wonder – The San Diego Union-Tribune

The University of San Diego has had an intercollegiate men’s soccer program for 39 seasons. It has had one head coach.

Think about that for a moment.

For that, the university can thank the foresight of Tom Burke for hiring Seamus McFadden to start the program in 1979, and the longevity and work ethic and recruiting prowess and tactical acuity and teaching skill and raw competitiveness and nurturing demeanor of McFadden himself as he nears the conclusion of his 39th, and final, season as head coach.

And a backyard laundry line 4,782 miles away.
