MICHAEL LINENBERGER 22nd SEASON AS HEAD COACH DUKE, 1987

Michael Linenberger begins his 22nd season at the helm of the Sacramento State men’s soccer program after being named the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Coach of the Year in 2009. He began his coaching career with the Hornets as an assistant in 1988 and became co-head coach in 1989 before taking sole control of the program in 1992. He has accumulated a record of 137-216-36 as a head coach. The Hornets are coming off a record-breaking 2009 season in which the team went undefeated in conference play (6-0-1), won both the MPSF regular season and tournament championships, and advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in school history. The squad finished with a 12-6-3 record and reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament after winning at Loyola Marymount in the first round. The 12 victories set a new single-season program record. His players received a slew of accolades after the fantastic 2009 campaign, including Ernesto Carranza who took home the league’s player of the year award. Carranza, Fernando Cabadas and Diego Marroquin were all named first-team All-MPSF and Carranza and Cabadas also earned All-Far West Region honors from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA). Sacramento State posted an 8-9-2 mark in 2008, finishing fourth in the MPSF with a record of 3-7-0. Three Hornets earned all-conference honors, with Cabadas earning first team honors. Adam Owens (second team) and Omar Martinez (honorable mention) went on to graduate and head to Puerto Rico to continue their soccer careers at the professional level. The Hornets finished the 2007 campaign with a record of 4-13-2, including a 3-6-1 mark in the MPSF. For the third straight season, the Hornets had a player drafted in the Major Indoor Soccer League as senior midfielder Eli Millan, who earned second team all-confernece honors, was selected in the fourth round by the California Cougars. He joined Marco Ramirez (2005) and Pedro Lupercio (2006) as Cougar draft picks from Sacramento State. In 2003, Linenberger led the Hornet squad to its third-consecutive MPSF postseason appearance. It marked the first time Sacramento State had reached postseason play three consecutive years. During the 2001 season, Linenberger guided the Hornets to their first regular-season conference championship in the Div. I era (1991-present). Sacramento State’s 4-1-2 MPSF record also gave the Hornets their most conference wins in program history at the time. Due to his efforts, Linenberger was named 2001 MPSF Men’s Soccer Coach of the Year. Off the field, he served five years as a member of the NCAA Div. I national selection committee. Linenberger was named to the NCAA Div. I Men’s Soccer Committee in the fall of 1997. As chair of the Far West Region, he travelled to Indianapolis, and served as the region representative during the process of selecting the 48 teams that compete annually in the NCAA tournament. As a member of the NCAA soccer committee, Linenberger’s duties included overseeing site selection in the Far West Region for all rounds leading up to the Men’s College Cup, updating selection criteria and standards for the championships, rating conferences and serving at the College Cup as a member of the NCAA contingent which oversees the event. In October of 2008, Linenberger was named head coach of the U.S. Soccer Olympic Development Program for Region IV, overseeing all five age groups between U-14 and U-18. Linenberger is in charge of coach selection, player selection and the overall training curriculum. In addition, Linenberger was named a scout by the U.S. Soccer Federation for Project 2010, an initiative designed to make the men’s national team fully competitive by the 2010 World Cup. His primary duties included the scouting of 13-14 year olds in Northern California that have future national team potential but are not in the ODP system. Linenberger received a bachelor of arts degree in psychology from Duke University in 1987. He was a four-year letterwinner as a member of the Blue Devils’ soccer team and a team captain. He was captain of the 1986 squad which won the NCAA Div. I national title. Linenberger played professional soccer with the Sacramento Senators and for FC St. Pauli and SC Norderstedt in Germany’s second and third divisions. In addition, 30 of his former Sacramento State student-athletes have gone on to professional careers. That includes Joe Enochs, who was named to the 2001 U.S. National team.

THE MOUNTAIN PACIFIC SPORTS FEDERATION

The Mountain Pacific Sports Federation (MPSF) was established during the 1992-93 season to serve the competitive needs of member institutions from the Big Sky, Big West, Pacific-10 and Western Athletic Conferences, as well as other selected universities in the western United States; and to provide championships competition for Division I intercollegiate Olympic sports in a conference setting. In 2010-11, the MPSF will again sponsor competition in nine intercollegiate Olympic sports while serving over 1,500 student-athletes and approximately 71 teams from 34 universities in 12 western states. All MPSF teams compete at the NCAA Division I level in men’s soccer, men’s and women’s water polo, men’s and women’s indoor track and field, men’s and women’s gymnastics, women’s lacrosse and men’s volleyball. MPSF champions are eligible to compete in NCAA Championships with MPSF men’s soccer, men’s and women’s water polo, and men’s volleyball champions earning automatic qualification into NCAA championship events. Two new teams joined the MPSF in men’s soccer last season, Cal State Bakersfield and Seattle, drastically changing the MPSF schedule. Instead of round-robin play, which the conference had been using since 2004, each team will play at least one game against each of the seven other squads in an attempt to finish in the top six to make the MPSF postseason tournament. This season’s tournament will be held at Sacramento State, last season’s MPSF regular season and tournament champion.
