Providence College Athletics Director Bob Driscoll named Sam Lopes the head women's soccer coach on Thursday, April 10 (2014). Lopes becomes the ninth head coach in the history of the women's soccer program.

Lopes returns to the Friars after spending one season as the head coach of the UNH Wildcats. Lopes coached three Wildcat players who earned America East post-season honors. Freshman goalkeeper Mimi Borkan earned a spot on the 2013 America East All-Rookie squad, while Hannah Blondin and Colleen Murray nabbed spots on the All-Academic Team.

Prior to his term at UNH, Lopes spent two years as an assistant coach at Providence College (2011-201). In his first season with the Friars, Lopes assisted Providence to their first BIG EAST Tournament game since 1994. Providence then defeated Rutgers, 1-0, to advance to the quarterfinals. He also helped coach Jenna Roncarati to her third consecutive All-BIG EAST honor. At Providence, Lopes assisted with recruiting, scouting, travel and budgeting, as well as monitoring the academic progress of student athletes and planning team training and individual workouts.

Lopes was the head assistant women's coach at Southern Connecticut State University from 2005-2011. He was highly involved in recruiting, planning off-season training and helped establish the Freshman Athletic Scholastic Training (F.A.S.T.) academic program.

Lopes, a 2002 graduate of Quinnipiac University, received a bachelor's degree in Computer Information Systems. He was a four-year member of the soccer team and was a captain during his senior season. After playing at Quinnipiac, Lopes went on to play in the United States Soccer Leagues for the Connecticut Wolves and the Westchester Flames.

He began his coaching career in 2002 as an assistant at Saint Joseph College in West Hartford, Conn. Additionally, Lopes served as an assistant coach with the Boston Breakers (2010-11), Quickstrike Lady Blues (2009) and New England Mutiny (2007-08).
