Bailey To Serve As Goalkeeping Coach; Butwin As Volunteer
NEW HAVEN, Conn. – There will be a pair of newcomers to the Yale women's soccer coaching staff this season, but they won't be unfamiliar faces. Cailean Bailey, who has spent the last two years as an assistant coach for the Yale men, will now be assisting both programs, serving as the goalkeeping coach for the women. In addition, Jenny Butwin '13, the captain of the women's squad last year, will return to the program as a volunteer assistant coach.
Bailey has coached five All-Ivy selections during his time with the men.
He came to Yale after spending two years at Valparaiso. The Crusaders posted a 19-15-4 overall record during his tenure, the best two-season mark in program history. He tutored 2009 Horizon League Goalkeeper of the Year Ryan Schwarz. In addition, he served as head reserve team coach leading them to a 20-4-3 record over two seasons.
Bailey also has experience coaching ODP and US Development Academy teams, while also serving as a staff member at elite high school recruiting camps throughout the country. In addition, he serves as the head coach of the Connecticut Beachside Soccer Club Under-15 Boys team.
Bailey was a four-year letterwinner at Illinois College, where he served as team captain for three seasons. He earned a bachelor's degree in communications and rhetorical science as well as a bachelor's degree in management and organizational leadership (sport) in 2008. He then completed his master's degree in sports administration from Valparaiso in 2010.
Butwin provided outstanding leadership to the Bulldogs as team captain last fall. She started a career-high two games as a senior and was the recipient of the team's Captain Cup award as a freshman in 2009. In addition to serving as a coach, Butwin is working at the Barnard School in New Haven as part of the Teach For America program.
