NEW ORLEANS - Dave Poggi, who was removed from his post as women's soccer coach at the University of Louisiana in May, has been named head women's coach at Loyola-New Orleans.

Poggi coached the Ragin' Cajun squad since the program's inauguration, and his team had its best overall record in program history last fall while setting school marks for goals, shots, assists, points and fewest goals allowed.

Prior to UL, Poggi was the head men's coach at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay from 1992-96. He was also the head men's coach at Truman State University (1985-1992) and Lane College (1982-1985).

Poggi has also coached on the professional level. He led the Utah Freezz of the WISL from 1999-2000 and the Lafayette SwampCats of the EISL from 1997-99, winning back-to-back EISL titles.
