Jeremy Bonomo, former head coach at Assumption College (NCAA DII) and 2009 Northeast 10 Conference Coach of the Year, will be in his fifth season with the Bearcats in 2014.
Bonomo has a proven ability to recruit at Cincinnati, securing five top 100 recruits (2011, 2012), three high school All-Americans, two state players of the year and two members of youth national teams. Bonomo played a vital role in developing the 2011 recruiting class, which was ranked 28th nationally.

Prior to his arrival at UC, Bonomo spent three seasons as the head coach at Assumption College. The Greyhounds held a 2-13-2 record before Bonomo's tenure began, but he finished his stint at Assumption with a 9-6-3 record in 2009 that included a final No. 10 ranking in the NSCAA East Regional Ranking. He developed seven all-conference, two all-region and one player of the year with the Greyhounds.
Bonomo began his career as an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator for his alma mater, Southern New Hampshire. In his final season, the Penmen advanced to the NE-10 Semifinals and the NCAA New England Regional.
Bonomo played collegiately at Southern New Hampshire, where he captained teams that posted a 62-14-10 record during his career that included three NCAA Tournaments, two NCAA quarterfinal appearances and the 2002 National Runner-Up. SNHU also made four Northeast-10 Conference playoff appearances and earned two league championships.
In addition to playing soccer on the collegiate level, Bonomo was a member of the PDL's Cape Cod Crusaders' national champion team in 2003 and the USL's Western-Mass Pioneers in 2005.
Bonomo graduated from SNHU cum laude with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration in 2002 and received his Masters in Business Administration with a certificate in Operations Management in 2006. He holds a United States Soccer Federation `A' License.
