Mike Dibbini enters his third season at the helm of K-State women’s soccer in the 2018 season and his 13th season overall as a collegiate head coach.
Dibbini guided the Wildcats through its first official Big 12 season in 2017 and staked K-State to a program record 6-11-1 overall mark and a 1-8-0 record in Big 12 play.
K-State had its first postseason league honor, as Hannah Davis was named to the All-Big 12 Freshman Team. The Wildcats were also successful in the classroom, as a program-high 10 student-athletes were named to the Academic All-Big 12 teams.
In the program’s first season in 2016, Dibbini led the Wildcats to a 4-9-3 overall record. K-State secured the first win in program history and Dibbini’s first NCAA Division I win at Oakland on Aug. 26, 2016.
At the conclusion of the first season, three Wildcats were named to the Academic All-Big 12 Team – Kim Braddock, Miranda Larkin and Addie Jenkins.
Dibbini was hired in December of 2014 as Kansas State’s first intercollegiate women’s soccer coach and guided the program through the year and a half process of forming a program from the ground up.
Dibbini graduated Cum Laude from Kansas Wesleyan University in 1999 with a degree in Elementary Education, and continued on to earn a Master of Business Administration in 2002.
Dibbini and his wife Trina, also a Kansas Wesleyan graduate and Baldwin City, Kansas, native, have two children, Jada and Kadin.
