A highly decorated and respected collegiate and professional player, Nadelen begins his sixth season at Towson’s helm. He spent seven seasons as an assistant coach for former Towson head coach Tony Seaman, including two years as the team’s associate head coach and defensive coordinator.
After winning the program’s fifth Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) championship, the Tigers logged their third-straight winning season under the direction of Nadelen. The third-straight winning season marks the first such run for the Tigers since a seven-year spurt from 2001-07.
Since Nadelen arrived at Towson in 2004, he has sparked a defensive resurgence in which the Tigers have allowed an average of nine or fewer goals four times and finished among the nation’s top 20 defenses twice, including 2011 when the Tigers allowed 8.23 goals per game.
