Another hall pass awaits former Hartwick coach Lennox

Staff Report

The National Soccer Coaches Association of America can’t get enough of Jim Lennox.

Almost a year after receiving the NSCAA’s lifetime achievement award, the organization will induct former Hartwick College men’s soccer coach Lennox into its Hall of Fame in January.

Lennox is a senior national staff coach and former Director of Coaching Education for the NSCAA, which announced Wednesday that he will be honored at 7 p.m. Jan. 17 during its Awards Banquet at the 2014 Convention in Philadelphia.

This past January, Lennox received the Walt Chyzowych Award for Lifetime Achievement from the NSCAA for a career that started in 1969 at Mitchell College in New London, Conn., and was highlighted by Hartwick’s national championship in 1977.

Lennox won NSCAA Junior College Coach of the Year in 1975 before taking over at Hartwick in 1976. His Hartwick program produced 13 NCAA Tournament appearances, five trips to the national semifinals and the 1977 national title. The NSCAA selected Lennox as its NCAA Division I National Coach of the Year in 1977 and 1984.

Lennox went 318-163-43 from 1977-2002 at Hartwick for a winning percentage of .648. He went on to serve as director of coaching for the Connecticut Youth Soccer Association (2003-06) before becoming an assistant women’s soccer at the College of Saint Rose.

Lennox served the NSCAA as its Director of Coaching from 1983-1990 and is a senior national staff coach in the NSCAA Coaching Academy. In addition to his Lifetime Achievement award last year, Lennox also earned the Bill Jeffery College Long-Term Service Award (2009), the Mike Berticelli Excellence in Coaching Education Award (2000), and an NSCAA Letter of Commendation (1989).

Lennox is also a member of the Hartwick College, Mitchell College and East Stroudsburg University halls of fame.
