Women's Soccer Coaching Biographies
Entering his 18th season coaching at Cincinnati State, Wil Cagle has been instrumental in the development and success of the school's soccer program.
After a playing career as a goalkeeper at Northwest High School and the University of Dayton, Cagle became the head coach of the Taylor Mill High School boys's team from 1988 until 1996. During his time at Taylor Mill, he instituted a junior varsity and middle school program in order to further develop and prepare players for the demands of varsity level competition.
In 1996, Cagle was named Cincinnati State's first men's soccer coach when the school decided to launch the program. He coached the program to an undefeated season in his first year and back to back conference championships in 1997 and 1998.
Cagle would once again help usher in a new era at Cincinnati State as the school announced the birth of the women's soccer program in 2000. Just two seasons later, the Lady Surge won the regional championship and appeared in the NJCAA Div. I National Tournament. In 2010, Cincinnati State finished with the best overall record in the program's history at 13-3 and a final national ranking of 13th.
Cagle has developed six NJCAA All-Americans. He is licensed as a Class B U.S. National Coach. The National “B” License certifies one in concepts that are targeted toward coaching players age 16 to college level. The National “B” License focuses on recognizing the principles of the game and its technical applications in 9v9 game situations.
