Former Oklahoma women's soccer head coach Matt Potter has been named the U.S. Soccer Under-23 head coach Thursday morning. The U-23 national team is for women under the age of 23 and is part of the United States 14-team youth program.
Potter led the Sooners to an 8-9-3 record in the 2019 season, including a road victory over Arkansas and a tie against the 12th ranked team in the country, Oklahoma State. Potter’s record as the head coach at Oklahoma is 63-77-23, one behind the school-record of wins held by Randy Evans with 64.
In 2016, Potter led Oklahoma to their best ever season as a team, winning 14 games and winning their first and only NCAA Tournament win.
OU soccer will turn to a new chapter in newly-hired head coach Mark Carr, who was hired last month.
