New Mexico men’s soccer coach Jeremy Fishbein recorded a milestone 300th career win in a 3-0 win over Loyola Marymount last Wednesday — 206 of his wins have come at the helm for New Mexico.
Entering the 2017 season, Fishbein ranked 17th among active Division I coaches in career wins. He began his career 1992 at Fort Lewis College, a Division II school in Colorado and came to New Mexico in 2001 as the assistant head coach to Klaus Weber. Following Weber’s retirement at the conclusion of the 2001 season, Fishbein was promoted to head coach.
In the 15 complete seasons since he took over, Fishbein has led the team to 11 NCAA Tournament appearances, including an appearance in the championship game during the 2005 season. His 206 wins at New Mexico make him the winningest coach in program history.
"This is a great group to share it with,” Fishbein said in a release. “I am proud of this group of guys, and I'm grateful to have had such a wonderful group of players to have worked with throughout my career."
In addition to Fishbein’s accomplishments, Lobos goalie Jason Beaulieu was named the C-USA Defensive Player of the Week for his performances over Loyola Marymount and Florida Atlantic this past week.
Against LMU, Beaulieu recorded his 19th career shutout in the 3-0 win, with seven saves. In the weekend match, Beaulieu allowed one goal and recorded one save in the Lobos 3-1 win. It brings his total to 40 saves on the year. This is the fourth time in his career that Beaulieu has been honored with this award and the first this season.
The Lobos’ next match will be Saturday, Oct. 14 at 7 p.m. against the University of Alabama-Birmingham at the UNM Soccer Complex.
