Ted Zingman enters his third season as the head coach of the Red Devil women's soccer program for the fall of 2019.
Zingman came to Carlisle from Hamline University in St. Paul, Minnesota, where he spent 10 seasons as the head coach of the women's soccer program. In addition, he has served as the compliance director for athletics since 2012.
In his third season with the Red Devils, Zingman was named the Centennial Conference Coach of the Year, leading the Red Devils to a regular season conference title, going unbeaten to earn the top seed in the playoffs. The Red Devils were ranked as high as 11th in the nation, advancing to the conference championship and earning an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament, making it all the way to the "Sweet Sixteen" for the third time in program history. The Red Devils produced four All-Region players and earned seven spots on the All-Conference Team, led by Rookie of the Year, Meg Tate '23. Sophomore Carli Boyer '22 set a school record with 12 shutouts on the season while the Red Devils tied the school mark with 16 wins, going 16-3-4 overall.
During his tenure at Hamline, Zingman completely rebuilt the program while producing the most wins and the highest winning percentage in school history. In his first season at Hamline, he led the Pipers to the program's first winning season and its first ever victories over regionally and nationally ranked opponents. That season also saw the first Hamline player lead the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (MIAC) in scoring while becoming a National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) Scholar All-Region selection.
The 2011 season marked the first time Hamline posted a top-10 regional ranking, and the 2012 team set a school record with 12 wins. In 2016, Zingman finished his Piper career with one of the best seasons in program history—11 wins and the program's first conference playoff appearance.
In addition to their on-field success, the Piper players proved to be accomplished students as well. During Zingman's tenure, the team's combined grade-point average never slipped below 3.0 and only once went below a 3.25. The team GPA has been above 3.5 for three of the past four years. Hamline has received the NSCAA Team Academic Award for five straight seasons, ranking second in the nation in 2013-14.
Zingman was also active in the Minnesota soccer community, serving as a head coach for the Minnesota Olympic Development Program (ODP) for four years. In addition, he was head coach of the Under-17 Northern Lights Premier Soccer team in 2011 and co-coached the Under-14 Eden Prairie state championship team in 2010.
Prior to taking over the program at Hamline, Zingman was an assistant coach for the Johns Hopkins University women's soccer team for three years. He helped lead the team to their first top-10 national ranking, back-to-back Centennial Conference titles, the program's first NCAA tournament victory and back-to-back appearances in the second round of the NCAA tournament. JHU's record during Zingman's three seasons was 50-11-4, and he coached the first All-American in the program's history.
Zingman excelled as a player at Johns Hopkins as well. In his four years, the JHU men's soccer team had a record of 64-10-4, was ranked as high as No. 2 in the nation and appeared in the quarterfinals of the 1998 NCAA tournament. Zingman was a prolific scorer for the Blue Jays, breaking the team's single-season scoring record with 23 goals in 1999, ranking him fourth in the nation that season. Zingman was a First-team All-South Atlantic selection and graduated second all-time in the program, recording 47 goals and 22 assists. His 116 career points ranks him 11th on the all-time Centennial Conference scoring list, and he currently holds the Centennial Conference record for conference goals in a season with 13 (1999; tied).
Zingman graduated from Johns Hopkins with a degree in civil engineering in 2000. He went on to spend six years as a project manager with the Whiting-Turner Contracting Company before making the full-time switch to coaching. He received an MBA from Hamline in 2014 and holds a Premier Diploma from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America and a B License from the United States Soccer Federation.
He and his wife, Elizabeth Cooney-Zingman, reside in Harrisburg, Pa.
