LOUISVILLE, Ky. – On the heels of the program’s first national championship, Florida SouthWestern State College, was awarded 2021 NFCA NJCAA DI National Coaching Staff of the Year honors.
Under the direction of the program’s only head coach, Robert Iamurri, the Bucs (49-4) captured their first-ever NJCAA DI National Championship with a 5-1 comeback win over Grayson College in the title game. Along with the guidance of his staff – assistant coaches Kellie Quarles, Marta Fuentes & Ryan Iamurri and volunteer assistant Jeff Stevens - FSW wrapped up the season by defeating seven different NJCAA DI Top 15 ranked teams over the final eight games of the season.
Ranked No. 1 in eight weeks of NJCAA DI Top-20 Coaches Poll and no lower than third nationally all season, the Bucs enjoyed an undefeated run through the Suncoast Conference, winning their fifth straight regular-season title. Iamurri, the Suncoast Conference Coach of the Year, has put together a remarkable six-year stretch for FSW. He has steered the program to a 398-37 record, 75-4 in league play, two state championships and four trips to the NJCAA DI Tournament.
