BRONXVILLE, N.Y. – Former Concordia College men’s soccer coach Sean Kenny will return to his Bronxville roots this season after being hired to once again lead the Clippers on the field.
Kenny – who held the title of head coach from 1987 to 1994 – was hired by Concordia Athletic Director Ivan Marquez this week after serving as the director of coaching at the Scarsdale Youth Soccer Club for three years.
“Concordia is honored and humbled to have the opportunity of having a proven high quality and integrity individual in Sean to take the reins of our men’s soccer program,” Marquez said. “It is time to bring our program to a higher level competitively and we firmly believe we have secured the right leadership to give us the best chance to get there.”
While at the Scarsdale Youth Club, Kenny was responsible for 22 professional coaches, 45 teams and more than 700 players who participate in the program. During his first stint at Concordia, he elevated the program from NAIA to NCAA Division II status. He was also integral in the creation of the women’s soccer program in the early 1990s.
The new coach worked with FC Westchester in Purchase for nearly two decades, serving as everything from head coach to director of coaching while serving on the board of directors. He led two teams to national championships and won seven state titles, including five straight from 1997 to 2001.
Following his first tour at Concordia, Kenny served as an assistant coach at St. John’s University, where he won a national championship in 1996. The Red Storm won three Big East Conference Championships and were seven-time NCAA Tournament selections during his tenure.
“I’m hoping to build a soccer program that the college and its students will be proud of,” Kenny said. “The nucleus of an already successful team is in place, and I look forward to working with the players.”
