Former Bull Casey Derkacz Returns as Final Coach Added to Buffalo's Roster

The Bulls completed their coaching roster by bringing in former Buffalo men's soccer player Casey Derkacz.

The Buffalo Bulls completed their coaching roster after adding former Buffalo men's soccer player Casey Derkacz to finish first-year head women's soccer coach Shawn Burke's staff. The former Bull returns to Buffalo after spending two seasons as an assistant coach at Slippery Rock University.

The Hamburg, NY native was the top assistant to head coach Noreen Herlihy and while he is entering his fourth year as a collegiate coach he has coached in some capacity since 2004. Derkacz aided the Rocks to two straight NCAA Tournaments, a Sweet 16 in 2012 and an Elite 8 in 2013.

He also earned a PSAC Championship in his first season at Slippery Rock and also helped the team win the Atlantic Region title in 2013. During his two years with the Rocks, Slippery Rock held a 29-10-5 combined record and helped them finish ranked No. 6 in Division II during the 2013 season.

Before settling in Slippery Rock, the former Bull helped take the Penn State Behrend men's and women's teams to the NCAA Division III Tournament and an Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference championship.

During Derkacz playing days at Buffalo, the midfielder made 64 appearances and 49 starts for Penn State and UB. He led the Bulls in assists during his senior season and helped guide the team to the conference semifinals. But he wasn't all feet and no brains as the mid earned Academic All-Big 10 honors at Penn State and Mid-American Conference honors in Buffalo.
