(Updated Sept, 2014)

Chad Riley was named the 10th head coach of the BIg Green on April 24, 2013. 

Riley concluded his first season as the head coach of the Big Green men's soccer team. The team amassed a 6-7-4 record and began the season with a program-best eight-game unbeaten streak – its best since 1978. Senior Colin Skelly and junior Colin Heffron were named to the 2013 All-Ivy League Team.  Skelly was also tabbed as an All-Ivy Academic member. 

In 2012, Riley joined Jeff Cook's staff as an assistant coach. In his first season on the Big Green sidelines Dartmouth took second place in the Ivy League standings and made Burnham Field a tough place to play by going undefeated for the second consecutive season.

Riley helped tutor five Big Green players to All-Ivy honors, including first-team selection in Kevin Dzierzawski and Alex Adelabu. Under Riley's watch the Big Green also performed in the classroom with Teo Larsson Sax earning Academic All-Ivy honors and NSCAA Scholar All-Region honors. Kevin Dzierzawski also earned a spot on the Scholar All-Region team in 2012.

Riley comes to Dartmouth after spending the last six seasons at his alma mater, Notre Dame.  While roaming the Irish sidelines, Riley has helped the Fighting Irish compile a 71-37-21 record with five NCAA Championship appearances and two Elite Eight appearances.

The Irish captured BIG EAST Blue Division titles in 2007 and 2008, the first time Notre Dame captured back-to-back BIG EAST crowns. Notre Dame has reached the semifinals of the BIG EAST Championship in five of the last six seasons.

A 2004 Notre Dame graduate, Riley has helped mentor four All-Americans, including the 2006 MAC Hermann Trophy recipient, Joseph Lapira as well as three Academic All-Americans while in South Bend.

Prior to returning to South Bend, Riley made coaching stops at Oberlin College in Ohio during the 2004 season and at St. John's in 2005. While at Oberlin, he helped guide the squad to a 9-8-3 record and helped five players earn All-North Coast Athletic Conference honors. During his season at St. John's, the Red Storm posted an 11-6-5 record and a berth in the third round of the NCAA Tournament. 

Riley, a Houston, Texas native, was a four-time monogram winner and a three-time All-BIG EAST award winner during his collegiate career. Throughout his career he tallied 52 career points on 10 goals and 32 assists. He led the Irish in assists in three seasons and ranks second on the Irish all-time assists list.

Riley received his NSCAA Advanced National Diploma in 2009.
