McCauley named women’s soccer coach

Missouri S&T selected Joe McCauley to lead the women’s soccer program. McCauley served as head women’s soccer coach for the past six seasons at Eckerd College in Florida. He brings 11 years of head coaching experience to the Lady Miner program, including a five-year stint within the Great Lakes Valley Conference at Bellarmine University.


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, winning 10 of its 17 games, and made it back to the conference tournament a year later.
McCauley 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.
