Vanderbilt University is a private research university founded in 1873 and located in Nashville, Tennessee. It was named in honor of shipping and rail magnate Cornelius Vanderbilt, who provided the school its initial $1 million endowment despite having never been to the South.
Today, Vanderbilt enrolls approximately 12,000 students from all 50 U.S. states and over 90 foreign countries in four undergraduate and six graduate and professional schools.
Vanderbilt is ranked as one of the top universities for its undergraduate teaching, research opportunities, and post-graduate employment placements.
Vanderbilt is a charter member of the Southeastern Conference and for a half-century has been the conference’s only private school.
In his first season with the Vanderbilt women’s soccer team, head coach Darren Ambrose led the Commodores to one of their most successful seasons in recent memory, achieving a team goal of an SEC Tournament appearance and notching their first winning season since 2009.
Ambrose never had a losing season in his 15 years overseeing the program, as the Quakers averaged nearly 10 wins a year under his watch. He coached the team’s first two All-Americans as well as its first NSCAA Scholar All-America, CoSIDA Academic All-America of the Year, Ivy League Player of the Year, Ivy League Defensive Player of the Year and Ivy League Rookies of the Year. In addition, Ambrose was at the helm for all of Penn’s Ivy League championships (2001, 2007, 2010), three of its four NCAA Championship berths (2001, 2007, 2010), and an ECAC title in 2000.
Ambrose served as a regional staff coach for the Olympic Development Program in Regions II and III for more than five years. He was also an ODP state staff coach in both Tennessee and Florida.
Ambrose, who holds a United States Soccer Federation (USSF) “A” License and a National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) Advanced National Diploma, has also taken an active role in soccer education programs. He served as an instructor for the Tennessee State Soccer Association, and at Rhodes he taught USSF “E” and “D” license courses to Rhodes players who were beginning their coaching careers in the local community. Ambrose is also an instructor for NSCAA goalkeeping courses.
Born near Sheffield, England, Ambrose played soccer with the youth programs of Sheffield United of the English League Championship and Doncaster Rovers of the English League first division. He also represented the English Schools Regional Team before coming to the U.S. for his college career at Division II national power USC-Spartanburg (S.C.).
Ambrose and his wife, Sherry, have two daughters: Madison and Ainsley.
