ALLIANCE, Ohio -- The University of Mount Union has named David Krems as head men's soccer coach.
"I am excited and looking forward to being the head coach at Mount Union," stated Krems. "I want to lead a program that maintains a high standard of excellence both on and off the field where student-athletes can compete for championships while maintaining high academic merit and pursuing a degree."
Krems has spent the last two seasons as an assistant men's soccer coach at Penn State-Behrend in Erie, Pennsylvania. In those seasons, he helped lead the Lions to a 35-6-2 record with a pair of Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference titles, and two NCAA Tournament appearances including a run to the round of 16 in 2018.
"The search committee believed that David's experience and record of success will allow us to continue the upward trajectory of the men's soccer program at Mount Union," commented interim athletic director Mike Parnell.
Prior to being at Penn State-Behrend, Krems had assistant coaching stints at Case Western Reserve University, Notre Dame College, Hiram College and Xavier University.
Krems was a four-year starter as a player at Hiram as the Terriers went 43-17-13 over his career and he is currently seventh in school history in career goals.
A native of Lakewood, Ohio, he graduated from Hiram with a bachelor's degree in Business Management.
