In his four seasons at the reins of the Badger program, DeVries has coached 28 SSAC All-Academic Team members, 10 Daktronics-NAIA Scholar Athletes, four CoSIDA Academic All-District Team members, two CoSIDA Academic All-America 1st team members and two SSAC All-Freshmen team members member in Molly Cowley and Courtney Harlan.

In 2008, he was a selected the UMAC Men's Soccer Coach of the Year.

Prior to taking over the men's program, DeVries coached the Cougar women's program for eight years. During the first five years he turned an NCAA Division II program that went 4-11 in the 1998 season into a conference contender that finished third in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC) in 2002. In 2003 UMM joined the UMAC while transitioning to NCAA Division III and DeVries' teams promptly captured one regular season and two conference tournament titles between 2003 and 2005.

Before joining the UMM staff, DeVries served as the head women's soccer coach at Missouri Valley College in Marshall, Mo., during the 1994 and 1995 seasons. His tenure at MVC included an All-American selection, four Academic All-Americans and earning a No. 17 rating in the NAIA national poll.

At Adams State, DeVries earned dual bachelor's degrees in Business Administration and Industrial Technology in 1991 and a master's in Guidance & Counseling in 1993.
