Marquette University graduate Bob Gansler, who led the USA to its first World Cup appearance in 40 years, was one of two people who have been selected to the National Soccer Coaches Association of America's (NSCAA) Hall of Fame.

Gansler, along with former University of California coach Bob DiGrazia, will be inducted into the Hall at the Awards Banquet on Jan. 15 as part of the 2010 NSCAA Convention in Philadelphia.

The first-ever recipient of the Marquette athletic department's Lifetime Achievement Award, which he accepted last April, Gansler began his coaching career as an assistant with the University's first men's varsity soccer team. He then worked as an assistant to U.S. men's national team coach Walter Chyzowych in the 1970s and early '80s. 

Gansler also coached the 1989 U.S. team that advanced to the U-20 World Cup semifinals. Gansler became coach of the Kansas City Wizards in 1999 and guided them to an MLS Cup championship in 2000. He was the Wizards coach for eight seasons.
