    Interesting info. Just glad I did not have to input the raw data or devise the ranking formulas. Will be interesting to follow the ranking in the future as more coaches meet the 3 year criteria. Appreciate the stat analysis work and thoughtful insight that AWK articles frequently provide for women’s soccer.

    How “adjusted” can these rankings be? The BU coach is No. 5, yet the team gets eliminated in round 2 in the tournament in 2013; doesn’t get an at-large bid in 2012; then gets eliminated in round 2 again in 2011. Shouldn’t results in these playoffs be given a bit more weight?

      BU didn’t get a bid in 2012 b/c they weren’t allowed to participate in the America East playoffs due to their plans to switch conferences the next year. They actually had a very good year, and were the regular season Champ in the conference and most likely would have earned their place in the NCAAs if they hadn’t been banned by AE.

    Let’s look at Portland. Their coach is ranked No. 8 yet they’ve been eliminated in round 2 in the NCAAs in the past 4 years. Should good season records be given more weight than poor tournament results?

    So, if BJ Snow had stayed at UCLA for another year with the same record and same dismal season end, he would now be ranked No. 2?

      On which of the two applicable CoachRank tenets for the Pac-12, league success and NCAA Tournament success, would Snow do well enough to be ranked at #2?

      Addendum: I averaged together his two SeasonScores and added the average of that as a “2013″ score. He would’ve finished 16th in the current rankings.

    In your assessment of coaches in your rankings, was any attempt made at number of players that have played or are playing on the WNT team or how many are playing professionally or how many have become successful coaches?
