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.

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.
