Bloomington High School’s football team will have a familiar face leading it next season, and one that’s already made his mark on the gridiron in the Twin Cities.

Bloomington athletic director Tony Bauman announced Niall Mulcahy as the Purple Raiders’ new head coach on Friday via X.

Mulcahy was Bloomington's head junior varsity coach for six years and has taught math at the school since 2016. He was also an assistant on the the Purple Raiders varsity team and helped them 5-4 record in the regular season last year and the program’s first playoff berth since 2019. 

He replaces Scott Godfrey, who coached at BHS for six seasons and compiled a 24-27 record before taking the head coaching position at Heyworth in March. 

Mulcahy, a native of Elmhurst and a graduate of Fenwick High School, was a four-year letterwinner at Illinois Wesleyan University from 2011-2014 and the offensive lineman was a three time all-CCIW honoree, earning a first-team all-conference nod in 2013, as well as a Preseason All-American by USA College Football in 2014.
