A familiar face is returning to Seattle University’s soccer program. The university has hired Pete Fewing as the head coach of men’s soccer. The announcement was made on Jan. 10 at a press conference at the Ed and John O’Brien Center for Athletic Administration on the SU campus.

From 1988 through the 2005 season Fewing coached men’s soccer and had a record of 220-125-26 (.628) during his 18 seasons at the helm. In 1997 he lead the team to the NAIA National Championship and in 2004 the NCAA Division II National Championship.

"I am thrilled to have this opportunity to return to Seattle University," Fewing said. "My goal is to build the program to winning conference championships and competing in the NCAA Tournament."

Most recently, Fewing was the head coach of the Kitsap Pumas of the Professional Development League (PDL) in 2010 and 2011, helping the Pumas win the 2011 PDL National Championship. He co-authored the book Coaching Principles for Development of Championship Teams, and he has been an analyst during the television broadcasts of Major League Soccer’s Seattle Sounders FC matches.
