Aurora tabs DeNinno to lead women’s soccer program

Aurora University today announced the hiring of Shannon DeNinno as head coach of its women's soccer program. Entering the 25th season of AU women's soccer in the fall of 2018, DeNinno becomes the fifth Head Coach and begins her tenure immediately. 
 
"We are thrilled that Shannon DeNinno has agreed to lead AU women's soccer. Her pedigree as a high level player and coach make her a perfect fit," said Aurora University Director of Athletics Jim Hamad. "We anticipate that she will quickly take the program to new heights."
 
DeNinno comes to AU after spending the previous six seasons as the assistant head coach of the Carnegie Mellon University women's soccer program. In her six seasons as an assistant at CMU, the Tartans amassed an 82-19-12 overall record with six NCAA Tournament appearances and advanced to three Sweet 16's and one Elite 8.
 
"I am excited and honored to have the opportunity to lead the women's soccer program at Aurora University," DeNinno said. "The program has a rich history of excellence on the field and in the classroom and I intend on continuing that tradition. I want to thank the AU administration, Jim Hamad and the hiring committee for this amazing opportunity."
 
Prior to her time at Carnegie Mellon, she spent the 2010 season as an assistant coach at the University of Montevallo and a season as the women's assistant at Lenoir-Rhyne University, where she helped guide the Bears to a #8 national ranking and a 19-2-2 overall record. That same year, Lenoir-Rhyne won the South Atlantic Championship, as DeNinno helped coach two All-Americans, the conference player of the year and freshman of the year.

DeNinno is a 2009 graduate of the University of Tampa with a Bachelor of Arts degree in communications and a minor in graphic design. She earned her master's degree from Lenoir-Rhyne University in May of 2011 in business administration.

As a player, DeNinno spent three seasons at the University of Tampa, where she won a Division II National Championship in 2007. At Tampa, she was part of a team that compiled a record of 52-7-6 in three seasons and appeared in 41 games. She finished her collegiate eligibility at Lenoir-Rhyne, where she was the team's third-leading scorer with six goals and seven assists.
 
She went on to be a four-year member of the IMG W-League semi-pro team from 2004-07 and spent one season with the WPSL Clearwater Galactics semi-pro team in 2009 and served as team captain.

DeNinno takes over a Spartan program that was 7-9-1 overall in 2017 and in 24 seasons of play holds a 344-145-25 record with 16 conference championships and 11 NCAA Division III tournament appearances.
