Simon Tobin, who coached teams at CSU Bakersfield to a NCAA Division II championship and seven conference titles, accepted the San Jose State University men's soccer head coaching position in June 2014.

Tobin brings a 321-224-60 win-loss record over 30 seasons in men's soccer into 2017. His 1997 Roadrunners won the NCAA Division II Men's Soccer Championship as part of eight NCAA Division I and II championship appearances. Of CSU Bakersfield's seven conference titles, three were in the last four seasons (2010, 2011 and 2012) as the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation's (MPSF) Pacific Division winner.

The native of London, England, was named CSU Bakersfield's head coach for men's soccer in 1987. In 19 seasons competing as a NCAA Division II program, the Roadrunners were ranked in the final top-20 national coaches poll 10 times. His teams posted .500 or better win-loss records 22 out of his 27 seasons and won 10 or more matches in a season 17 times.

The 1997 National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) National Coach of the Year is a six-time conference Coach-of-the-Year in the California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) and the MPSF."

Tobin cites CSUB's NCAA Division I Tournament selection in 2011, in just the second year of the program being a fully fledged Division I team, as his biggest coaching achievement to date. 

 

During Tobin's career he has produced numerous top professional players, and also initiated the collegiate coaching careers of many former male and female players.   

Tobin resides in Santa Cruz with wife, Amy, and daughter, Ava.
