Looks like Real Madrid isn't the only soccer team that's bringing in millions this offseason.

Penn women's soccer announced that David Brush, 1982 College graduate and Penn Soccer Executive Board Chair, and Karen Clark Brush, 1982 Wharton graduate, would be donating $1.5 million to the program to create the Douglas N. Brush Head Coach of Women's Soccer Endowed Fund. 

The fund will both provide financial backing for the head coach position and support the program as a whole moving forward. Fourteen Penn athletic programs had endowed coaching positions before this summer — women's soccer will now be joining their ranks, which provides a key leg up for the team in competing with the other well-funded programs in the Ivy League.
