Bearcats tab Central Michigan's Stafford as head coach
November 29th, 2012 7:26PM

TAGS:  college women


[CINCINNATI] Central Michigan women’s head coach Neil Stafford has accepted the same position at Cincinnati.

Stafford spent the last four years at CMU, including the past two as head coach. He’d previously served eight seasons as head coach at NCAA Division II Assumption.

Central Michigan finished 15-7-1 this past season, ending its season with an overtime loss to Michigan in the first round of the NCAA national championship tournament. The Chippewas' season was highlighted by a 2-0 win over West Virginia and a scoreless draw at Big East champion Marquette.

In 2011, the Chippewas were 15-3-3, the best single-season winning percentage in school history, and set the MAC record for fewest goals allowed in conference regular-season play with four. The team’s 0.41 goals against average was fifth-best in the nation.

“It is an honor to be a part of the Bearcats family,” said Stafford.

Assistant coach Ian Carry has been assigned the CMU interim head coach role as the athletics department conducts a national search for the permanent replacement.
