MOST COMMENTED

[COLLEGE WOMEN] Dartmouth has hired Ron Rainey from the University of Iowa as the new head coach of the Big Green women’s program, replacing Theresa Romagnolo, the new head women’s coach at Notre Dame.
 
Rainey spent the past eight seasons at the helm of the Iowa women’s team, guiding the Hawkeyes to their third straight season of double-digit victories and first invitation ever for Iowa to the NCAA Tournament in 2013.
 
“We have hired a gem in Ron Rainey to lead our women’s soccer program,” Dartmouth Director of Athletics and Recreation Harry Sheehy said in a statement. “He has consistently improved every team he has coached, did some truly outstanding work at Iowa and will build upon the recent successes of our team here at Dartmouth. The athletics department and college as a whole are excited to have Ron, his wife Margaret and three children join our family here in Hanover.”
 
Rainey inherited an Iowa team that was in a rebuilding mode in 2006, having won a total of nine games over the previous three seasons. But during his first three campaigns, Iowa won a total of 23 contests. He is the all-time winningest coach in Iowa women’s soccer history, amassing a record of 80-67-17 during his tenure.

Before being hired by Iowa, Rainey served as the head coach at Ball State for the first seven seasons of the women’s soccer program, beginning in 1999. Under his tutelage, the Cardinals posted a 70-52-17 mark.
 
He also previously held head coaching positions at Towson and Wisconsin-Parkside.
