Maryland men's soccer coach Sasho Cirovski has been suspended one game by the Big Ten for actions after the team's loss to Northwestern on Sunday that were in violation of the conference's sportsmanship policy. As part of the penalty, the school has also been fined $10,000. Cirovski will incur the total cost of the fine, according to a team spokeswoman. Cirovski will serve the suspension Wednesday night against Virginia Commonwealth. According to a story in The Diamondback , Maryland's student paper, Cirovski "tried pushing his way toward the officials, his arms flailing and his voice booming" after the 3-2 overtime loss at Northwestern.

Amid the old Terps jerseys and the "Daddy's Girls" picture frame and the College Cup posters in Sasho Cirovski's office sit the Maryland soccer coach's two bookcases. They're packed, he says, with "every coaching book you can imagine. " One book in particular stands out: the autobiography of Manchester United's Sir Alex Ferguson, who before his 2013 retirement won 13 English Premier League titles, 19 domestic cups and two Champions League crowns. He is, in short, probably soccer's most successful manager of all time - and by far its most legendary.

Maryland made the NCAA final four in men's soccer last fall for the first time since 1969, thanks partly to a defensive tip the U.S. under-18 women's national team coach gave coach Sasho Cirovski.Early this season, the two talked about midfield options for her new team -- Maryland's women. And nine days ago, Shannon Higgins-Cirovski returned from Tobacco Road with a 4-3, overtime win over then-No. 9-ranked Duke, her first win as coach in an Atlantic Coast Conference game.Unusual combination, Mr. and Mrs. Cirovski.

Passion for soccer drives Cirovski College Park -- Sasho Cirovski doesn't demand much, for college soccer in general and the University of Maryland in particular. Another NCAA title or three for a program that reached that pinnacle last December. Assorted cable networks battling for the rights to college matches. A new lacrosse/soccer facility here, perhaps named Trpe Stadium, which is not a typo. To achieve his dreams, Cirovski plays up the CEO smarts that he honed while earning an MBA and redirects the passion that produced red cards from his playing days to the 2002 NCAA semifinals.

COLLEGE PARK - - He keeps the picture in his office, on a shelf with mementos of the country's most dominant college soccer coach. All around are highlights of Sasho Cirovski's past, from the two national championships his Maryland teams have won to the 40 players they've furnished the pros. But that stuff pales next to Cirovski's treasure - a framed black-and-white photo of his family, circa 1969. It could have been taken during World War II. That's Cirovski in the foreground, in the rocky Macedonian village where he lived, a smallish boy with pursed lips and a resolute gaze far too focused for an ordinary 7-year-old.

CARY, N.C. -- In 13 years of coaching soccer at the University of Maryland, Sasho Cirovski has tried to measure success in something other than wins and losses. He has campaigned for increased fan support. He has repeatedly pestered the athletic department for funding in an effort to make improvements to the Terps' stadium. He has lobbied - successfully, it's worth noting - for weekly broadcasts of college soccer games on national television.

DALLAS - The Maryland men's soccer team's dream to bring back the school's second national championship ended yesterday amid a storm of controversy. Terrapins coach Sasho Cirovski was issued a red card and was not around to see UCLA junior Adolfo Gregorio drill home a penalty shot with a little more than eight minutes to play. That goal sent the third-seeded Bruins to a 2-1 victory over second-seeded Maryland before 7,025 in the semifinals of the College Cup at Gerald J. Ford Stadium on the campus of Southern Methodist University.

CHESTER, Pa. - Maryland's run to the 2013 College Cup final was orchestrated by the goal-scoring magic of senior All-American forward Patrick Mullins and freshman goalkeeper Zack Steffen. Mullins, a favorite to win the Hermann Award as college soccer's most outstanding player, seemed to live up to his reputation in the first half Sunday against Notre Dame at PPL Park. Unfortunately, Steffen proved he was human. After Mullins had given the fifth-seeded Terps the game's first goal with about 10 minutes left before halftime, third-seeded Notre Dame put a goal past Steffen on set pieces in each half to secure a 2-1 victory.

CHESTER, Pa. - In the summer of 1980, a 17-year-old Sasho Cirovski played on Scotland's Aberdeen Football Club youth team, which at the time was led by a coach named Bobby Clark. “My first memory was that he didn't play me in my first game, and I was not happy,” Cirovski recalled Friday. “He played me the next couple games, and I was much happier.” Cirovski and Clark will see each other and shake hands today at PPL Park in Chester, Pa., but it will be as equals.

In the aftermath of a loss to Georgetown in the semifinals of last year's NCAA men's soccer tournament -- a game that was settled on penalty kicks -- Maryland coach Sasho Cirovski could have been forgiven for his outburst that the team would return to the College Cup next season. Fortunately for Cirovski, the No. 5-seeded Terps backed up their coach's promise with a 2-1 upset of No. 4 seed California in Saturday's quarterfinals, sending the program to its 13th College Cup and eighth during Cirovski's tenure.

A Maryland men's soccer team seeded fifth in the NCAA tournament could welcome back an important member of its offense for Sunday's second-round game against Providence at Ludwig Field in College Park at 5 p.m. Sasho Cirovski said Friday afternoon that he is "hopeful" that Schillo Tshuma will return after suffering a muscle injury in last Friday's 1-0 overtime win against Clemson in an Atlantic Coast Conference tournament semifinal.

The Maryland men's soccer team may still be smarting from Saturday night's 4-3 loss to Atlantic Coast Conference rival Wake Forest, but it won't have time to dwell on the setback. That's because the Terps (6-3-5) are slated to tangle with Drexel (7-5-2) at Ludwig Field Tuesday night. It's an awfully quick turnaround for Maryland, but coach Sasho Cirovski said he doesn't mind. “I'm just happy that we have a game to play shortly after the loss because you want to get back on the field and try to solve some of your problems,” he said Monday.

The Maryland men's soccer team has used a 6-2-5 overall record and a 4-0-3 mark in the Atlantic Coast Conference to earn the No. 4 ranking in the National Soccer Coaches of America Association poll. But the healthy record masked an uncharacteristic start for the team. The Terps opened the season with one win, two losses and two ties, marking the program's worst start since the 1993 squad went 1-4-0. The slow opening, however, did not concern coach Sasho Cirovski. “I was not surprised at our slow start, particularly out west,” he said Thursday.

Sasho Cirovski's outburst that prompted the Maryland men's soccer coach's ejection from yesterday's 2-1 loss to UCLA was likely motivated by a lot more than a second-half no-call when Domenic Mediate fell down in the box. Not known for their physical play, the Terps and UCLA combined for 31 fouls in the NCAA semifinal. The Bruins had 19, and seemed to irritate Maryland with a couple of hard fouls, including two in a 30-second span of the first half. The first came after Maryland defender Clarence Goodson and UCLA forward Cliff McKinley got tangled up and fell to the ground.

One-zero. That's the score Maryland's men's soccer team hopes to settle against California tomorrow in the NCAA tournament. The Terps (19-3) lost, 1-0, to California in August on the West Coast in a game that was scoreless for the first 86 minutes. Now, three months later, the teams meet again in third-round play at Ludwig Field in College Park (1 p.m.). "We're a much better team this time around, but they [the Golden Bears] have earned the right to be here. There are a lot of good juices flowing for this one," Maryland coach Sasho Cirovski said yesterday.

Diamonds and the Maryland men's soccer team have a lot in common. As coach Sasho Cirovski explains, his team has been forged by pressure, preparation and expectations. Cirovski doesn't compare Maryland to the jewel for just those three reasons, however, but also because he expects his team's final product to be tough and high-quality. “We've worked hard to make ourselves the biggest bull's-eye in college soccer,” he said Tuesday as his team prepared for today's NCAA College Cup semifinal against Georgetown in Hoover, Ala. “I don't mind putting pressure on our team and our players, because we feel that that makes us better.
