News arrives that former Drury Panthers coach Ryan Swan, now Head Coach for the Division 1 Northern Illinois Huskies, has hired his former assistant Andrew Bordelon. From the Stevenson Mustangs Andrew Bordelon Accepts Position at Northern Illinois, Steps Down as Men’s Soccer Coach

Stevenson University head men’s soccer coach Andrew Bordelon announced Thursday that he is stepping down from that position in order to accept a position as an assistant coach on the men’s soccer staff at Division I Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, Illinois.

Named the seventh head coach in Stevenson men’s soccer history this past June, Bordelon came to Stevenson from Westminster (Mo.) College, where he had guided the men’s soccer program to three straight SLIAC conference titles and three straight NCAA appearances. Prior to that, he was an assistant on the staff at Division II power Drury University, his alma mater, under Ryan Swan, who was named Northern Illinois head coach in January.
