Dunn is in his third season as the Head Men's Soccer Coach at Viterbo.

Dunn played NCAA Division I Men's Soccer at Valparaiso University (Ind.) as a midfielder from 2010-2013. He was a three-time recipient of the Valparaiso University Student-Athlete Presidential Honors. During the 2014 fall, Dunn served as an undergraduate assistant coach for the Crusaders.

Ryan Bolte, Associate Head Coach Bethany Lutheran College

Bolte enters his seventh season with the men’s program and his second as associate head coach. Bolte assists in all elements of program development including recruiting, practice planning, and gameday operations. The Colorado native joined the men’s coaching staff in 2015 and helped lead the team to a UMAC playoff appearance and the team’s first postseason victory in over a decade. The 2020 squad advanced to the UMAC Tournament championship game for the first time in program history. Bolte began assisting with the women’s program in 2016 and will continue working with them in 2021.
Bolte was a four-year letterwinner with the Vikings and ranks in the top 10 of eight career goalkeeper categories. He helped lead the team to UMAC tournament appearances in three of his four years.

Dan Rothert, Founder, Top Student Athlete Recruiting (Recruiting Seminar Lead)

-Before retiring from college coaching after the 2019 season, Dan Rothert, was one of the most successful college soccer coaches in NCAA history at any level. One of the few coaches with over 500 collegiate wins, Rothert’s 613 wins at Loras College in Dubuque, Iowa, between the men’s and women’s programs, puts him in rarified company. Rothert built Loras College into a NCAA III powerhouse for both men’s and women’s soccer. In his 22 years with the men, his teams won 12 conference championships and made 12 NCAA tournaments, while advancing to 8 Sweet Sixteen’s and 5 NCAA Final Fours (including finishing as national runner-up in 2015).   

Rothert also spent 5 years as Associate AD overseeing recruiting where he learned the in and outs of admissions and financial aid and uses this knowledge to help his clients find great fit opportunities and save money on college costs.

His company, Top Student Athlete Recruiting helps high school soccer prospects and families find the right-fit college to attend and compete at – academically, athletically, socially and financially.  Click here to learn more.
