TThrough 30 seasons as a head coach, including the last 20 years at the helm of Virginia's program, Swanson has established himself as one of the elite coaches in collegiate soccer, and certainly one of the most respected. Swanson has led his teams to seven conference championships, 25 NCAA Tournament appearances and 29 consecutive winning seasons during his 30-year career. He also has accumulated 419 career wins as a head coach making him one of only 11 NCAA Division I women's soccer coaches to hit the 400-win milestone.
In his time as Virginia's head coach, he has compiled a 315-94-48 record and coached 11 ACC Player of the Year selections, three ACC Freshman of the Year selections and twice been named the ACC Coach of the Year. He also coached back-to-back MAC Hermann Trophy winner, Morgan Brian.
The last six years will be ones Swanson will never forget because of the successes experienced on the pitch as both a collegiate coach and with the US Women's National Team.
