Richardson was the first men’s soccer coach in Penn College history. From 1994 to 2004, his team’s amassed an impressive 105-50-10 (.667) overall record, won two conference championships and had seven postseason appearances. He was a two-time Coach of the Year selection whose teams’ legacies live on, holding 11 school records.
