Head Women’s Soccer Coach
Joe McCauley is in his third season in charge of the women's soccer program at Missouri S&T. He had previously served as the head women’s soccer coach for six seasons at Eckerd College in Florida.
In his first season he guided the Lady Miners to their first winning season in 10 years and led them to the postseason for the first time in school history. S&T finished the season with an 8-7 mark, and 8-6 in the Great Lakes Valley Conference. The Lady Miners secured their playoff berth with a 3-0 win over Saint Joseph's College on the final weekend of the regular season and guaranteed themselves a winning record with a 1-0 victory over Indianapolis on the last day of the regular season.
A year ago, the Lady Miners finished with a record of 5-9-2, but won three games that went into overtime and recorded three shutouts away from home.
McCauley brought 11 years of head coaching experience to the Lady Miner program when he took over prior to the 2010 season, including a five-year stint within the GLVC at Bellarmine University.
“I am tremendously excited to have Joe on our coaching staff,” said Missouri S&T director of athletics Mark Mullin. “He has a wealth of experience and is familiar with our league. Joe has demonstrated an understanding and a commitment to balancing academics and athletics.
“I am confident that his enthusiasm, knowledge, and communication skills will serve to move our women’s soccer program in a very positive direction,” Mullin added.
Prior to taking over the program at Eckerd in 2003, McCauley served as the goalkeepers coach at Northern Illinois University for five seasons. While at NIU, he helped guide the Huskies to the Mid-American Conference championship in 1998 when they went 14-7 and posted four shutouts.
McCauley coached at Bellarmine from 1991-97 – taking over as the Knights’ head coach in 1992 – and led the Knights to back-to-back winning seasons in 1995 and 1996. In the 1995 season, Bellarmine reached the semifinals of the GLVC Tournament as it won 10 of its 17 games, then made it back to the conference tournament a year later.
A native of Louisville, Ky., McCauley was a four-year letterwinner at the University of Louisville and was named as the Cardinals’ most valuable player in 1987, along with earning Metro Conference all-tournament team honors. During that season, McCauley posted a 2.06 goals against average as the team’s goalkeeper and co-captain. As a senior, he recorded a 1.60 goals against mark.
He began his coaching career at Louisville in 1990 as the goalkeepers coach, then moved over to Bellarmine to join the Knights’ staff a year later.
McCauley has also been active with the Olympic Development Program, working with teams in Kentucky and Illinois as the state head coach. In that capacity, he was responsible for the selection and training of the state’s top talent for competition at the regional level and guided the Girls Under 18 Illinois State team to the ODP national championship in 1995.
He earned his bachelor’s degree in physical education from Louisville in 1992.
