In 2010, Maryland earned the # 1 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament, and Pensky was named both National Coach of the Year by Soccer America and ACC Coach of the Year. He served as the head coach of the Maryland women’s soccer team from 2005-11 and posted a 67-52-20 overall record. While at the helm in College Park, Pensky led the Terrapins to their most successful three-year run in program history, with a 44-14-9 record and a .724 win percentage over the last three years.
“I am humbled and honored to be the next head women’s soccer coach at the University of Tennessee,” said Pensky. “There were a number of factors that went into this decision, including the tradition of athletic excellence, the passionate fan base, and the first-class facilities”.
