NOTRE DAME, Ind. - Theresa Romagnolo, head women's soccer coach at Dartmouth College for the past three seasons following highly-successful stints as an assistant coach at Stanford University and the University of San Diego, has been named head women's soccer coach at the University of Notre Dame, vice president and director of athletics Jack Swarbrick announced Wednesday.
Romagnolo (pronounced tuh-RAY-suh roh-muh-NELL-oh) is the fourth head coach in the 27-year history of the Fighting Irish women's soccer program, and she takes the reins from Randy Waldrum, who stepped down in January following 15 seasons to become head coach of the Houston Dash in the National Women's Soccer League (NWSL).
"We are thrilled to have Theresa join the Notre Dame family," Swarbrick said. "She brings with her a demonstrated commitment to educational and competitive excellence - the values that have been at the core of our women's soccer program's two decades of success. Because she does, I have no doubt that Theresa will help our program to achieve even greater success in the years to come."
"I am humbled and honored by the opportunity to lead the University of Notre Dame women's soccer program," Romagnolo said. "I'd like to thank (University President) Father (John) Jenkins, Jack Swarbrick and (senior associate athletic director/women's soccer administrator) Mike Harrity for their confidence in me as I embark on this incredible opportunity.
