The College of Mount Saint Vincent is a Catholic liberal arts college located in the Riverdale section of the Bronx, N.Y. It has an enrollment of 1,800 and competes in athletics at the Division 3 level, in the Skyline Conference.
“I want to thank Mr. Yeboah for giving me the opportunity to lead the CMSV Men’s Soccer program,” Wurzburger said in the press release that announced his hiring. “I can’t wait to begin preparing for the upcoming season.”

“We are excited to have Coach Wurzburger at the helm of the Men’s Soccer program,” said Mr. Yeboah. “I am confident with his coaching and playing experience he will have an immediate impact on the young men in our program.”
As an assistant at Montclair St, Wurzburger assisted in recruiting and technical training and helped guide the team to back-to-back NJAC titles in 2015 & 2016.
“I’m confident we can build a program that competes for championships in the Skyline Conference, while playing the kind of exciting soccer that makes our Alumnae/i, fans and campus community proud,” Wurzburger said.
