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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

When Sasho Cirovski walked onto Maryland's campus in 1993 as the new men's soccer coach, he took one look at some of the antiquated facilities and said, "We're going to build a national championship program. " Since making that bold statement, the ninth-ranked Terps have won two NCAA titles, advanced to six College Cups and brought home four ACC championships. Cirovski, however, is still expanding his vision as he opens his 20th season Sunday against No. 12 Louisville. Cirovski has set a new goal for a state-of-the-art, soccer-specific stadium, seating 8,000 to10,000 on campus, within the next five years.

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.
