Steve Rammel Leaves UCLA For Head Coaching Job At St. Mary's
March 29, 2001
UCLA men's soccer assistant coach Steve Rammel has left his position to become the head coach at St. Mary's College.
Rammel was an assistant at UCLA from 1998-2000. During his three years on staff, UCLA went 48-14 and advanced to the NCAA tournament all three years, with a semifinal appearance in 1999. He helped coach All-Americans Seth George, Nick Rimando, Carlos Bocanegra, McKinley Tennyson Jr. and Shaun Tsakiris, as well as 1999 M.A.C. Award winner Sasha Victorine. Rammel began his UCLA coaching career under former UCLA head coach Sigi Schmid, who left after the 1998 season to become the head coach of the Los Angeles Galaxy.
'Steve was key in the transition from Sigi to myself,' said current UCLA head coach Todd Saldana. 'He served us well, and we wish him luck.'
Rammel will return to Westwood soon, as his St. Mary's team is scheduled to participate in the UCLA Pacific Soccer Classic at the end of October.
