Originally from Bradford, PA, Mr. Bly will be starting his first year at Allegany-Limestone Middle-High School as our health teacher. Prior to teaching, Mr. Bly worked in professional soccer as the Head Coach of the Flower City Union. In the 2022 season, Mr. Bly was the youngest head coach in all of American pro soccer, and also guided the team to its first ever cup title. Wanting to stay in the area where he and Mrs. Bly were both raised to eventually start a family, he decided to leave soccer full-time and pursue teaching. "I am very proud to now be part of the ALCS district. When I was interviewing here, I could sense a strong culture of achievement and very friendly staff, and immediately I knew this was a place I wanted to be." says Mr. Bly.
Mr. Bly is still very involved in soccer. During the summer, he works for U.S. Soccer as an instructor for their advanced coaching courses, teaching coaches from all over the country. In his spare time, he enjoys running Twin Tiers Soccer Club and spending time with Mrs. Bly and their golden retriever, Stacie.
