Brookfield East boys soccer coach Herbie Dundun has resigned after 12 seasons leading the Spartans.

Under Dundun's leadership, Brookfield East made six WIAA state tournament appearances, winning the Division 2 state championship in 2014 and finishing as the Division 1 state runner-up in 2006.

"There is no doubt I have cherished and enjoyed my time at Brookfield East," Dundun said. "The students, staff, traditions and its motto of human and academic excellence make it a quality place. I consider myself privileged and honored to have been given the opportunity to touch the lives of so many for so many years."

Dundun was an assistant coach with the Spartans when Brookfield East won the state championship and finished as the top-ranked team in the nation in 1995. He took over as head coach after Bryan Yenor stepped down following the 2004 season.

The Spartans reached the state tournament in 2005, 2006, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2014 under Dundun. Brookfield East fell, 2-0, to Madison Memorial in the state championship game in 2006 and downed Cedarburg, 2-0, for the title in 2014.

"I would like to thank coach Dundun for his years of service to the Brookfield East students and community," Brookfield East athletic director Ben Westphal said. "Coach Dundun has been an important part of Brookfield East soccer for a long time, and the growth of the program and its many successes would not have been possible without him."

Dundun was the Wisconsin National Federation of State High Schools Association Coach of the Year in 2011 and was inducted into the Wisconsin Soccer Hall of Fame in 2016.

Brookfield East finished 10-7-3 overall and in a tie for second place in the Greater Metro at 5-1-1 last season. The Spartans were downed, 2-0, by Wauwatosa West in the regional final.
