In their first year in Westwood, the Bruin coaches led UCLA to a 20-win season, a No. 1 seed at the NCAA Tournament and the program’s 12th College Cup appearance. The Bruins began the season 13-0, the best start in school history, and held the No. 1 national ranking for nine straight weeks, from the first week of September to the end of the regular season. UCLA has allowed just 12 goals this season, while 18 different players have totaled 62 goals.

The Regional Staff of the Year recipients will be placed onto the National Staff of the Year ballot, and the winners from each division will be announced on Dec. 16, 2022. The staff will be recognized at the College Coaches Reception at the United Soccer Coaches Convention in Philadelphia on Jan. 20, 2023.
