Last December, K-State Athletic Director John Currie named Mike Dibbini as the university’s first intercollegiate women’s soccer coach.

Before becoming a Wildcat, Dibbini led the soccer programs at Kansas Wesleyan University (2005-12) and Cal Poly Pomona (2013-15). During each of his coaching stints at the NAIA and Division II levels, Dibbini built winning programs and successful student-athletes.

“As we searched nationally for our first head women’s soccer coach, we wanted to attract a well-connected, energetic leader who is the right fit for K-State and possesses the drive and vision to build a program into a national contender,” Currie said in a Dec. 26, 2014 press release. “From the moment we announced the launch of our new women’s soccer program we heard from literally hundreds of coaches at all levels of soccer around the country who saw the potential of K-State Soccer and wanted the opportunity to build our program. In Mike Dibbini, we have secured a leader with deep soccer roots, proven championship coaching ability, a passion of building and teaching the game, and who has firsthand knowledge of the advantages and special family environment of the state of Kansas. I am pleased to welcome him and his wife Trina and their two children to the Wildcat family. Exciting days are ahead for soccer fans across the entire state of Kansas and the Big 12!”
