Iowa women’s soccer head coach Ron Rainey has been announced as the new women’s soccer head coach at Dartmouth.

Rainey has served as the head coach at Iowa since 2006, amassing a record of 80-67-17. He has the most wins in Hawkeye soccer history. This past season, Iowa won 15 games, won their first Big Ten Tournament game in program history — they advanced to the Big Ten championship game, and earned the first NCAA Tournament berth in program history.

“We have hired a gem in Ron Rainey to lead our women’s soccer program,” Dartmouth Athletics Director Harry Sheehy said in a press release. “He has consistently improved every team he has coached, did some truly outstanding work at Iowa, and will build upon the recent successes of our team here at Dartmouth. The Athletics Department and college as a whole are excited to have Ron, his wife, Margaret and three children join our family here in Hanover.”

Rainey-coached Iowa teams featured 34 Academic All-Big Ten honorees, five Big Ten Tournament appearances, and five Big Ten All-Freshmen team members.

Rainey joins a Dartmouth team that went 8-6-3 last season.
