Earlier this summer, Bryn Mawr College Director of Athletics, Physical Education, and Recreation Kathy Tierney announced the hiring of Victor Brady as the new head coach of the Bryn Mawr field hockey program. Brady brings a wealth of experience and a pattern of recent success with him as he steps into the role of head coach for the Owls.
“I am beyond excited to be a part of the Bryn Mawr and to support the empowering environment that the college and our students create. I am fully committed to providing a positive, memorable, and transformative field hockey and college experience for my student-athletes while building the program to be a perennial Centennial Conference contender reflective of the excellence that defines Bryn Mawr!”
Brady comes to Bryn Mawr after two years as a graduate assistant coach at Smith College where he was involved in every aspect of running a thriving collegiate field hockey program including: creating and executing practice plans, creating scouting reports, coaching clinics, and evaluating and recruiting prospective athletes. The 2015 Smith Pioneers compiled their most wins in a season since 1993 and won the program’s first-ever East Coast Athletic Conference championship. With there, Brady also earned his Master of Science degree in Exercise and Sports Studies.
Prior to his tenure at Smith, Brady served as the assistant coach at Denison University for a season where he directed goalkeeper training. During that season, Denison’s starting goalkeeper, a first-year starter, recorded the fifth-best goals against average in Division III and a .785 save percentage. The Big Red would go on to a 17-2 record including a 13-game winning streak and an NCAC regular season co-champion title.
Brady also brings previous experience with the Tri-Co with him to Bryn Mawr, as he is a 2013 graduate of Swarthmore College. While at Swarthmore, Brady worked as a student-assistant field hockey coach, again working specifically with the goalkeepers. Additionally, Brady is a head coach in the USA Field Hockey’s Futures program where he coaches U14, U16, and U19 teams and directs training sessions. He also served as the coaching director for NOMADS Field Hockey Club in Northampton, Mass.
“The sport of field hockey is deeply rooted in Bryn Mawr’s history,” continued Brady. “The chance to pay homage to that history while defining a new era of Bryn Mawr field hockey is inspiring.”
