Head Coach Jim Herlinger begins his fifth season with the Pitt-Johnstown Lady Cat soccer program. Off to a rough start in 2008 (4-13-0), the team showed solid improvement in 2009 with an 8-10-0 record, missing the WVIAC Tournament by a single point. The team has been awarded the Silver Level Ethics Award by the NSCAA the past three seasons and earned the WVIAC Sportsmanship Award at the end of the 2009 and 2010 season.
Herlinger began his coaching career at Pitt-Johnstown in 1974 as an assistant coach to Clyde Horner with the men's soccer team after graduating from Slippery Rock University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Health and Physical Education. One year later, Herlinger took over the reins of the program when Horner focused on developing the Pitt-Johnstown women's basketball program.
left Pitt-Johnstown in 1976 and returned to Slippery Rock to pursue his master's degree in Physical Education and assist Hall of Fame soccer coach Jim Egli.
Herlinger, a 1970 graduate of Richland High School, has more than 35 years of coaching experience on every level from recreation and travel clubs to high school and college. He started boys and girls high school programs in both Virginia and North Carolina and was one of the co-founders of the first youth soccer program in the Greater Johnstown area. That program developed into Region 142 of the AYSO. Collegiately, Herlinger was the head soccer coach and men’s athletic director at Wheeling (WV) College from 1981-83, the assistant head coach at Division I Appalachian State (NC) University in 1980-81, an assistant coach at Gannon University from 1984-86 and the head men's soccer coach at Slippery Rock from 1988-1993.
Herlinger worked as an assistant coach at Cathedral Prep High School in 1987, the boys' and girls' head coach at Nottoway High School (VA) from 1996-2000 and the girls' and boys' head coach at West Johnston High School from 2001-2004.
Herlinger also spent time as an administrator with the FC Richmond youth soccer program in Richmond, VA, in 1994-95.
Herlinger also coached tennis at Warren Wilson in 1979, served as an assistant wrestling coach at Nottoway and West Johnston from 1996-2006, and he coached football at Nottoway in 1996 and 1999.
In 2004, Herlinger stepped out of coaching when asked to take over an administrative role as Testing Coordinator at a high school in North Carolina.
Two years later, Herlinger moved back north to assist with the care of his aging parents. Richland High School’s football field, Herlinger Field, was named after his late father.
Herlinger played at Slippery Rock from 1970 to 1973 and started two years. He played in indoor and outdoor amateur leagues in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Virginia, North Carolina and London, England until the age of 42.
has two grown sons, Logan and Gabriel, who both reside in Pittsburgh.
