Over the course of his 27 years as an assistant and head coach at Virginia, he has been a part of all seven of the Cavaliers' national championships.

Gelnovatch is the first coach in NCAA Division I men's soccer history to lead 20 straight teams to the NCAA tournament. He is one of just eight coaches in the Division I men's soccer annals to take 20 teams to the tournament and one of only four active coaches to do so.

Gelnovatch ranks as the 10th-winningest active head coach in Division I college soccer, with a .691 career winning percentage. He stands 25th in career wins among current head coaches. Among Division I coaches all-time, he ranks 36th in career winning percentage. These figures are even more striking when considering Gelnovatch's teams play one of the nation's toughest schedules on a yearly basis.
