USC men's and women's water polo head coach Jovan Vavic loves the number least until next year.

587_0849.JPGBorn in Yugoslavia, the UCLA alum has ditched his Bruin background for Trojan greatness.  He has won nine national championships (six men's and three women's) at Troy to go along with nine MPSF Coach of the Year honors and nine national Coach of the Year awards all while guiding two programs simultaneously.

In doing so, he is quickly moving up the most prestigious USC coaching list. 

Here are the all-time Trojan head coaches by team national championships...

1.) Dean Cromwell, Men's Track and Field - 12
2.) Rod Dedeaux, Baseball - 11
3.) George Toley, Men's Tennis - 10
4.) Peter Daland, Men's Swimming and Diving - 9
5.) Jovan Vavic, Men's and Women's Water Polo - 9

Peter Smith (three men's tennis), Andrea Gaston (two women's golf), Mick Haley (two women's volleyball), Ron Allice (women's track and field) and Ali Khosroshahin (women's soccer) are the other current national championship winning USC head coaches.
