Ken Lolla Ken Lolla
Head Men's Soccer Coach, University of Louisville
2010 NCAA Division I Men’s College Cup Runner-Up

When it comes to building a soccer program into a national power, University of Louisville head coach Ken Lolla has the midas touch.

When the University of Louisville moved into the BIG EAST Conference in 2005, they needed to find a coach that could take a program with no winning tradition and make it into a contender in the toughest league in the nation.

In his second season at the helm, Lolla guided the Cardinals to their first national ranking and their first NCAA Tournament Appearance. In 2009, Lolla guided the Cardinals to a history making season, winning their first conference title.

The Cardinals and Lolla followed that up with an undefeated regular season and runner-up finish in the NCAA Men’s College Cup in 2010.

Learn more about Ken Lolla.
