Originally from Omagh, Northern Ireland, Curneen played collegiately at Wingate University in North Carolina, helping lead the men’s soccer team to their first-ever NCAA Division II playoff berth.
Taking his playing talents to the coaching side, Curneen served as Head Coach for his alma mater’s women’s soccer program, leading the team to a 95-48-8 record during his nine seasons. Before coaching the women’s side, he acted as Assistant Coach for Wingate’s men’s program for two seasons. After Wingate, Curneen was the women’s soccer Assistant Coach at University of Cincinnati in 2013.
Most recently, Curneen was the women’s soccer Head Coach at California State University Bakersfield. After a successful 2016 season where the team placed second in league standings with a 4-2-1 conference record, he was named 2016 Western Athletic Conference (WAC) Coach of the Year.
In addition to his vast coaching experience, Curneen is the author of ‘The Modern Soccer Coach’ series, helping educate and provide tools for coaches to learn and grow. Curneen holds a UEFA ‘A’ License from the Irish FA and a Premier Diploma from the NSCAA. Bryce Cooper Newberry College BIO
