Ben Olsen wins 100th match as United head coach

D.C. United head coach Ben Olsen claimed his 100th win on Saturday in dramatic fashion, leading the Black-and-Red to a 5-0 win over Real Salt Lake at Audi Field.

As a player, Olsen was a force in the United midfield. After winning 1998 MLS Rookie of the Year, Olsen went on to win two MLS Cups before retiring in 2009 after 12 seasons with the team. Olsen was officially announced as the seventh head coach of D.C. United - and the youngest head coach in the history of the league - following the 2010 season.

During his tenure, Olsen has led United to the MLS Cup Playoffs five times, including last year's historic second-half run, and the 2013 U.S. Open Cup title. Olsen has also made himself part of the D.C. community, working closely with United community partner DC SCORES.

After a 2-0-1 start to his ninth full season as head coach of the Black-and-Red, Olsen shows no signs of stopping at just 100 wins in charge.
