Bill Brady has been as St. Bonaventure's head coach since 1999.

His plan is simple: build the program into an annual contender for the Atlantic 10 championship.

In 2002, Brady led St. Bonaventure to its first-ever national ranking, as the Bonnies were ranked 12th for one week in the NSCAA's top 20 poll.

Brady has coached four All-Atlantic 10 Conference players at St. Bonaventure including 1999 A-10 Player of the Year Tom Lemmon. Most recently, Kevin Omokhua was named to the 2003 Atlantic 10 All-Rookie team.

During the 1999 season, his first as a head coach, Brady led the Bonnies to their first Atlantic 10 Tournament berth, a 10-10 overall record and an 8-4 mark in conference matches, a school record for A-10 victories.

Prior to coming to St. Bonaventure, Brady was assistant coach at the University of Cincinnati for three years. Brady capped a very successful stint there in 1998, when he helped the Bearcats to an 11-5-3 record and their first-ever NCAA Tournament appearance. Cincinnati also earned its first-ever national ranking and finished the season ranked 27th.

Very active within the youth soccer community, Brady has coached the Olympic Development Program's New York West age group '84 team to back-to-back regional semifinals. Brady is a licensed coach with the Scottish Football Association.

Brady has served on the New York regional selection committee for the NCAA for three years and is a member of the NSCAA regional ranking committee.

A 1995 graduate of Wheaton (Mass.) College, Brady earned a bachelor's degree in political science. As a student-athlete, Brady led Wheaton, an NCAA Division III member, to three straight ECAC Tournament berths. He was named to the All-New England Region Team in 1994, and was Wheaton's Senior Athlete of the Year.

Brady and his wife Sofia reside in Olean.
