Bennett was also the assistant women’s coach at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio (2005-2007),

Bennett led the Mount to a first place regular season tie in the HCAC standings in 2011, turning in a 7-2 conference mark. The Lions' finish qualified them to the HCAC Tournament, where their season ended with a 3-2 semifinals loss to Bluffton University. The Mount also tied for first place in the regular season HCAC standings in 2012, with an 8-1 mark, and won the HCAC Tournament, posting a 3-0 win in the final over Transylvania University. The Lions then lost in the first round of the NCAA Division III Tournament to Washington (MO) University. In 2013, the Mount was third in the HCAC regular season, qualifying to the HCAC Tournament where they fell to Bluffton University, 3-2, in a first round match. The Mount also qualified to the HCAC Tournament in 2014, where they fell in a first-round match to Franklin College, 3-1.

While at the Mount, Bennett has coached the Lions to a 105-88 overall record and a regular season mark of 42-11 in the HCAC. He claimed his 100th career coaching victory at the Mount on Oct. 11, 2014, when the Lions recorded a 3-2 win at Manchester University.

The Lions’ head coach has also been employed as a substitute teacher by the Hamilton City School District. He graduated in 2001 from Miami University with a bachelor’s degree in health education and a minor in coaching.
