WEST ORANGE, NJ - West Orange Soccer Coach Lou Mignone will receive The Bob McNulty Coach of the Year Award at the New Jersey Youth Soccer 25th Annual Awards Dinner on Friday, January 4, 2013, at the Pines Manor in Edison, New Jersey. This is an incredible honor for Mignone, who is the Varsity Girls Soccer Coach at West Orange High School, and Director of Coaching for the Mountaintop West Orange United FC.
The recipient of the Bob McNulty Award represents the ideals and values of coaching as outlined by US Soccer. The award is named in honor of Bob McNulty, a former national staff coach, who instructed the national coaching school “C” courses for many years. Recipients such as Mignone, will best represent coaching and exemplify the importance of the role it plays in the development of young people. McNulty was appointed in 1974 to the national coaching staff as one of the “charter appointees” by USSF Director of Coaching, Walt Chyzowich. He served as the lead instructor for the National “C” License Course. Bob eventually served as a mentor to almost every instructor added to the National Coaching Staff.
