Bloomfield College Athletics has announced Mike Minielli as the new Bloomfield College head women’s soccer coach.
 
Minielli, whose career record is 247-247-51, comes to Bloomfield College after serving 11 years as head women’s soccer coach at Wagner College, where he led Wagner to three out of the program's four winning seasons, highlighted by when he guided the team in 2014 to their first Northeast Conference (NEC) championship appearance in 17 years.
 
That year, Wagner recorded its best-ever NEC record with a mark of 5-1-2, and an overall record of 9-7-2. In his 11-year tenure at Wagner, the Seahawks were 60-127-19 overall, including an NEC record of 28-62-9. During his tenure at Wagner, Minielli recruited and developed 13 student-athletes who went on to earn All-NEC recognition. 
 
Prior to Wagner in 2006, Minielli spent six seasons (2000-2005) as head coach at Murray State, where he won an average of eight games per year and helped develop 17 all-conference players. He also had 81 student-athletes named to the Ohio Valley Conference Honor Roll, including five who received the OVC Medal of Honor for Academics. In 2000-01, Murray State was rated the #1 First Year Women's Soccer Program by Soccer Buzz Magazine.
 
Minielli began his collegiate coaching career at Saint Joseph's College, his alma mater (class of 1986), where he oversaw both the men and women's programs. As head coach of women’s team from 1988-1999, he posted a 135-67-21 mark, earning two NCAA Division II tournament berths, including a 1996 Final Four appearance.
 
He also administrated the men's program for 11 seasons winning 111 games while supervising numerous all-conference and all-academic student-athletes. Saint Joseph's earned a national ranking eight times under his coaching.
 
Minielli has been honored as a Coach of the Year by various conferences and organizations eight different times during his coaching career.
 
Minielli earned a bachelor’s degree in history and political science from Saint Joseph’s College. He resides in Staten Island with his wife and daughter.
