|Year:||14th at MIT|
With a coaching resume covering two decades and many age groups, Jerry Mulloy is entering the 14th year at MIT. The head coach of the Engineers for 10 years, he moved into an assistant's role in 2011-12 when his daughter, Melissa, took over the program as head coach. He originally was a volunteer coach during the 1998-99 season. If the adage that experience makes the best teacher is true, Mulloy must be one heck of a student. His wealth of experience makes him a perfect match to coach the MIT rifle team.
Mulloy's shooting certifications and credentials could wallpaper an office. On a state-wide basis, he has a Massachusetts Class A License to carry firearms and is a certified firearms instructor by the Massachusetts State Police. The National Rifle Association has certified him as both a Rifle Instructor and an International Smallbore and Air Rifle Coach. USA Shooting (the national governing body for the Olympic sport of shooting) has certified Mulloy as an International Advanced Shooting Coach. He has also completed the Coaching Principles 1 course offered by the American Sport Education Program.
Mulloy has been one of the most respected coaches of Juniors in the country. He tutored Juniors throughout the 1990's at events including the Junior Olympic Shooting Championships (1993 and 1994), Olympic trials (1996) and the Walsh International Rifle Tournament (1995 and 1996). His experience with older groups led him to being a five-time coach in Three-Position Rifle at the NRA National Championship and working with competitors at the USA Shooting national championship.
On an administrative level, Mulloy has experience as a match director on both the local and state level. He is a member of USA Shooting, the NRA, and the Reading (Mass.) Rifle and Revolver Club.
