Harvard University men's soccer assistant coach Devin Rensing is leaving the Crimson to accept a new job as the associate head coach at Stevens Institute of Technology.
Rensing served on Harvard's staff for the past six months. Prior to joining the Crimson, he was the assistant at Colgate University, where he was a colleague of Coach Lewis in Hamilton, N.Y. for a time. In his last season at Colgate, Rensing helped guide the Raiders to an undefeated record in Patriot League play and a top-25 national ranking. The team was ranked fifth in the final regular-season Mid-Atlantic National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) Poll.
In total, Rensing won four Patriot League titles with Colgate, including back-to-back championship seasons in 2007 and 2008. He helped to mold over a dozen All-Patriot League selections and the Raiders posted an overall record of 37-26-11 with a splendid 18-5-5 Patriot League mark in that time.
Rensing also has coaching experience at Division I institutions University of Central Arkansas and Loyola University Chicago. As a player he patrolled the defensive line for both Eastern Illinois University and Forest Park (Ill.) Community College.
"I am pleased to be working with Devin as a partner in leading this team," said Lewis. "Devin has coached at top-notch Division I programs and brings a wealth of experience for his age to Stevens. Our program goes from strength to strength in the coaching ranks. We are lucky that Devin was available when we needed a strong soccer mind and strong leadership qualities. He understands our model and will also bring many great new ideas to the table."
