Further demonstrating the level of consistent dominance, Corfeld’s teams brought home first or second-place team trophies at the conference championships a whopping 75 times out of a combined 90 league meets.
In his 29 years on Milwaukee’s Eastside, Corfeld has completely rewritten the record books, with his student-athletes breaking 88 of the program’s top marks countless times over that span. Additionally, 20 of the Horizon League’s records are currently held by Milwaukee student-athletes; all of which were coached by Corfeld.
His success has certainly carried over to the next level. Milwaukee has produced 15 All-Americans under Corfeld’s coaching, including five in the last three years. The Panthers also have typically sent a large contingent to the NCAA Regional Championships each year, traditionally finishing higher than their seeding.
Corfeld’s student-athletes have also gone on to be named the Horizon League Athlete of the Year 17 times and the prestigious Horizon League Coleman Medal of Honor recipient five times.
He has also coached Milwaukee to a staggering 511 Horizon League event titles.
Many of his former student-athletes have gone on to follow in his footsteps, with over 30 former Panthers passing along the knowledge they learned from Corfeld at both the high school and collegiate levels across the country, many of whom are still coaching to this day.
A national search for the next head coach will begin immediately.
