Bellevue College against South Puget Sound in men's soccer

Sophomore Diego Ventura (10) advances the ball against South Puget Sound on Saturday, Sept. 26. The Bulldogs won the home match 3-1.

David O’Neill takes over the head coaching reigns in 2015 at Bellevue College, a program with a rich winning tradition featuring 10 NWAC titles; the second most in conference history.

The Bulldogs tied for third in the NWAC West Region in 2014, before dropping a playoff qualifier match 2-0 at Tacoma, with whom they had split a pair of regular-season matches. Bellevue finished 5-6-2 in the NWAC and 7-7-2 overall.

Freshman forward Anthony Dean was named the Most Valuable Player in the West Region, leading the region with 15 goals scored.

O’Neill originally was named co-head coach along with Kiko Magana in May 2015, but assumed sole head coaching duties when Magana accepted a coaching position at his alma mater, Lees-McRae College in North Carolina.

O’Neill teaches at Garfield High School in Seattle where he was the former boys and girls soccer coach from 2007-2009. He also is currently a coach in the Seattle United youth soccer program, coaching the U-16 Premier Club.
