Joe Soltis took over the reins of Bridgewater's high-scoring offense as the team's offensive coordinator in 2006. He took over for long-time offensive coordinator, Bob Colbert, who left the Eagles to take the head coaching job at Saint Vincent College.

Soltis rejoined the Bridgewater coaching staff in 1998 as the wide receivers coach after previously serving as running backs coach during Michael Clark's inaugural season in 1995. In between, he worked as a student assistant coach at James Madison University and earned his undergraduate degree in social science in 1998.

Soltis also played a year at running back for Emory & Henry and spent four years as an assistant coach at Glenvar High School in Salem, Va. from 1990-94.

Soltis is also the head strength and conditioning coach at Bridgewater. He resides in Bridgewater and is married to the former April Fifer, a 2004 Bridgewater graduate and a teacher in the Rockingham County Public Schools.
