In January of 2008 John Marovich was named the third head coach in the history of the Valparaiso University women’s soccer program. He joined the Valparaiso University coaching staff as an assistant coach prior to the 2002 season. After serving in this role for the Crusaders for his first three years with the program, he was promoted to associate head coach, where he assumed a full-time role prior to the 2005 season.
Marovich enters the 2012 campaign with a record of 34-29-14 both overall as a collegiate head coach and at Valpo. He ranks second in school history in victories, and his .526 winning percentage is tops all-time for the Crusader program.
Marovich guided the Crusaders to the Horizon League Tournament championship match in 2009 as Valpo finished the year 11-9-1 overall while placing third during the regular season, its highest finish in the Horizon League since joining the conference prior to the 2007 season. The 11 wins were third most in school history. Valpo matched its third place finish again under his guidance in 2011.
In 2008, his first season at the helm of the Brown and Gold, Marovich’s squad finished 10-6-3 overall while setting a new school record with 10 shutouts on the season. His team also set a new school mark for lowest goals against average in a season, 0.71, and posted a 7-2-1 record at home.
