A member of the Babson Athletics Hall of Fame who has guided his teams to 26 winning seasons, 20 postseason appearances, an ECAC New England Championship in 1997, and more wins than any other coach in team history, Jon Anderson enters his 31st season as head coach of the men's soccer program in 2016.

The Beavers have enjoyed unparalleled success under Anderson, posting a 370-166-64 (.670) record over 30 years and a New England Division III ranking in all but three seasons. Anderson's teams have made 15 NCAA Tournament appearances, including a trip to the Final Four in 1991, and back-to-back trips to the third round of the NCAA Tournament in 2010 and 2011. In addition, Babson has won 12 conference titles, including the NEWMAC Championship in 2002, 2004, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2014 and 2015, and posted a 40-game conference unbeaten streak from 2008 to 2013. 

Anderson has been honored as league coach of the year on nine occasions and has also been selected as the NSCAA New England Coach of the Year three times, most recently following the 2011 season when he led the Beavers their third straight NEWMAC regular season title and a 20-game unbeaten streak. He has led the Green and White to 11 consecutive winning seasons and 14 wins or more on nine different occasions.  

A 1975 graduate of Babson, Anderson was a three-year starter at center midfield, playing on teams that went 56-5-4 and earned three NCAA Tournament berths, including the school's first-ever national championship in 1975. Following graduation, Anderson was a teacher/coach in Weymouth and Cohasset, Mass., before taking over as Babson's soccer coach in 1986.

A well-respected lecturer and director of the popular Babson and South Shore soccer camps, Anderson resides with his family in Scituate, Mass. Two of his four children, Eric '13 and Emily '13, played soccer at Babson, with Eric graduating as the men's all-time leading scorer and only two-time first-team All-American.
