Joe Mallia, the winningest head coach in Loyola Maryland women's soccer history, is returning to lead the Greyhounds' program 14 years after last serving in that capacity. Mallia, who most recently was an assistant coach at Navy, guided the Greyhounds to an 87-45-8 record over seven seasons from 1998-2004. During that stretch, Loyola compiled a 54-4-5 record in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference , winning MAAC Championships and earning NCAA College Cup bids in each of his past five seasons. In his seven seasons as head coach at Loyola, Mallia's teams won a minimum of nine total games and at least six in MAAC play each year. In addition, the Greyhounds posted 12-or-more wins in five of those seasons, while his 2004 team posted a school-record 16 wins and set marks for most goals (59) and points (160) in a season that stand today. After leading Loyola to a school-record 16 wins in 2004, along with an unblemished 9-0-0 MAAC record, Mallia moved to the West Coast as the assistant head coach at UCLA. He also has been the head coach at Loyola Marymount and an assistant at Tennessee since leaving Loyola.
