Chris Tinius was hired as the head coach of the Bellarmine University womens soccer team in June of 2014 after having a standout tenure assisting at Division I Western Kentucky University, where he helped lead the Hilltoppers to multiple championships.
His first season overseeing the Knights was a smashing success. In 2014, Tinius guided BU to a 14-4-3 overall record and the programs fourth appearance in the NCAA Division II Tournament. Once there, Bellarmine defeated Michigan Tech to advance to the Midwest Region semifinals. In addition, the Knights went 11-1-3 in the GLVC and finished in second place while gaining the No. 2 seed in the conference tournament.
Behind Tinius leadership in 2014, Bellarmine set program records for fewest losses in GLVC play (one) and longest unbeaten streak (12) while going unbeaten on the road during the regular season for the first time in program history. The team tallied the second-most victories in BU history both overall and in GLVC play. The Knights also tied the record for most All-GLVC selections with six and placed four on the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) All-Midwest Region teams.
For his part, Tinius had the winningest season of any first-year coach at Bellarmine while becoming the first to lead the Knights into the NCAA Tournament in his debut year. BUs offense ranked in the top four in program history for goals scored and the defense was a top-10 unit for fewest goals allowed.
Prominent goalkeeping instructor Chris Cahill, a former star player at the University of Notre Dame and assistant at Harvard University, joined the Bellarmine University mens and womens soccer staffs as an assistant in 2014.
