OWINGS MILLS, Md. – Stevenson University head men's soccer coach Andrew Bordelon announced Thursday that he is stepping down from that position in order to accept a position as an assistant coach on the men's soccer staff at Division I Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, Illinois.
"It was a very difficult decision to step down at Stevenson University, a wonderful academic and athletic institution. I am very appreciative of Brett Adams for giving me the opportunity to be here and help grow the Stevenson University men's soccer program and very excited for the future of the program because I know it will be in great hands," said Bordelon.
"This is a great opportunity for Andrew, and while we are disappointed to see him depart Stevenson, we wish him the best of luck at Northern Illinois and as he furthers his collegiate coaching career," said Stevenson Director of Athletics Brett Adams. "Andrew and his staff have brought in a strong recruiting class for next fall and have built a strong foundation for the future of Mustang men's soccer."
Named the seventh head coach in Stevenson men's soccer history this past June, Bordelon came to Stevenson from Westminster (Mo.) College, where he had guided the men's soccer program to three straight SLIAC conference titles and three straight NCAA appearances. Prior to that, he was an assistant on the staff at Division II power Drury University, his alma mater, under Ryan Swan, who was named Northern Illinois head coach in January.
An announcement of a new head coach for the Stevenson men's soccer program will come in the near future.
