Before arriving at UCSB in 1999, Vom Steeg headed Santa Barbara Community College’s soccer program for seven years. In that time, Vom Steeg amassed an 121-18-4 record and won the 1996 California Community College State Championship.

“My seven years there gave me a great opportunity to work with some really good players, compete in some really good games and helped me develop my coaching philosophy,” Vom Steeg said.

During his time at SBCC, Vom Steeg led the Vaqueros to five Western State Conference championships. In addition to the 1996 state title, Vom Steeg’s teams reached the State Final Four four times, including his final season of 1998.

Vom Steeg was a five-time WSC Coach of the Year, and was the State Coach of the Year in 1996 and the NSCAA Far West Region Coach of the Year in 1997.

“To receive this recognition is a great honor and a credit to what the program was able to accomplish during those years,” Vom Steeg said.

Vom Steeg, the 2004 and 2006 NSCAA National Coach of the Year while at UCSB, will be honored during the fourth annual community college State Final Four dinner at College of the Canyons at 6 p.m. Dec. 4.

Vom Steeg has led UCSB to seven straight NCAA Tournaments, including this season. The Gauchos received a first-round bye and will host Cal at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Harder Stadium.

Matt Hurst is a UCSB assistant director of athletics communications.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
