James Pompeo has been named the new Head Coach of women’s volleyball at Bloomfield College. He has reached the NCAA Tournament as a player, Assistant Coach, and Head Coach. 
 
Pompeo joins the Bears after coaching as the assistant men's (2016-2017) and women’s (2015-2017) volleyball coach at Kean University, his alma mater.

During his first tenure at Kean, Pompeo was primarily in charge of opponent scouting, recruiting and match preparation, while helping lead the team to a 26-8 record. Kean also assisted the Cougars to a Skyline Conference championship, as well as the program's first NCAA tournament victory. 
 
Before joining a collegiate staff, Pompeo began his coaching career at Hillsborough High School, assisting the varsity coach and developing players that would later finish with a 20-5 record. He continued to coach at the high school level, most recently assisting at Niskayuna High School and leading the team to a program-best, 18-6 record.
 
Pompeo graduated from Kean University in 2013 with a B.A. in English. During his own collegiate career, as a member of the men's volleyball team at Kean University, Pompeo served as the team captain in 2011 and 2012. He helped lead the team to two Skyline Conference championships, recording 128 kills, 21 blocks and 225 digs.
