Hall of Fame

Dec 6, 2020

Stanford, Calif. -- Knowles Family Director of Men's Soccer Jeremy Gunn will be inducted into the CSUB Alumni Association Hall of Fame as part of its 2021 class, it was announced Sunday.

The CSUB Alumni Association will add five of its standout graduates, leaders in education, business, sports and philanthropy, into its Alumni Hall of Fame in February, during the university's 50th anniversary year.

Gunn played soccer at CSUB from 1989 to 1992, becoming a top California Collegiate Athletic Association goal scorer. He was named to the All-CCAA First Team in 1990, 1991 and 1992, and an NCAA Division II All American in 1992.

A 1993 graduate of CSU Bakersfield, Gunn began his coaching career as an assistant at his alma mater. He served on both the men's and women's coaching staffs during his seven-year stint at Bakersfield, helping the Roadrunners to the 1997 NCAA Division II national championship and an appearance in the 1995 national semifinal.

In eight years on The Farm, he has engineered the rapid ascent of a Stanford program which has climbed to the pinnacle of men's college soccer, including three straight NCAA championships from 2015-17.

One of four coaches with NCAA titles at both the Division I and Division II levels, Gunn has led a team to the College Cup final four times in the past nine seasons. He and Virginia's Bruce Arena (1991-94) are the only coaches to win three consecutive NCAA men's soccer championships.
