He joins a talented UCSB team that brings almost all of their starters back.
Tim Vom Steeg will be entering his 20th season as head coach at UCSB and it will not be hard to motivate his Gauchos this year. The university is hosting the College Cup in December as the national semifinals and final will be played at Harder Stadium.
