Assistant Coach

Experience:
First Season

Alma Mater:
Notre Dame '99

Although a new face to the Irish coaching staff this season, first-year assistant Nino Berticelli is certainly no stranger to the Notre Dame men's soccer program. The son of late Irish head coach Mike Berticelli, who coached at Notre Dame from 1990-99, Nino has been part of the Notre Dame men's soccer family for the last 10 years.

The 1999 University of Notre Dame graduate is one of two first-year assistants to join head coach Chris Apple's staff. Berticelli was a goalkeeper on the Irish squad from 1996-98 and was a member of the '96 team which captured the BIG EAST tournament title en route to a 14-7-2 record. That campaign proved historic as the Irish advanced to the second round of NCAA tournament after upsetting second-seeded UNC Greensboro 1-0 on the road. That win also marked the school's first-ever NCAA tournament victory.

Berticelli will work primarily with the Irish goalkeepers and will assist with daily team training and match preparation. In addition, he will coordinate team travel, scouting and recruiting and serve as director of the goalkeeping camp at Notre Dame.

Berticelli was a prep standout for St. Joseph High in South Bend, Ind., where he helped his team capture the 1992 state championship and served as team captain in 1995. He also was actively involved with the Junior Irish Club Soccer program in the Michiana area.

Currently, Berticelli coaches a youth team with the Junior Irish boys' soccer club and serves as the club's goalkeeping trainer.

Born April 2, 1977, Berticelli received his bachelor of arts in sociology.

"I could not be more pleased with the addition of Nino Berticelli to the men's soccer coaching staff at the University of Notre Dame," Apple says.

"The experience Nino gained as a Notre Dame student-athlete will certainly prove invaluable to our program. He also brings with him a wealth of expertise in the area of goalkeeping training. More than all this, though, Nino's love, loyalty and dedication for Notre Dame and its men's soccer program is unparalleled."
