New Gophers athletic director Norwood Teague wasted little time in naming a new women's soccer head coach. The school announced Wednesday the hiring of Stefanie Golan, previously the head coach at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. She replaces Mikki Denney Wright, who stepped down last month.
Golan, 33, led Army to a 33-18-10 record in three seasons and was chosen the 2010 Patriot League Coach of the Year.
Denney Wright resigned to spend more time with her family but left the program in good shape. The Gophers reached the final 16 of the NCAA tournament in two of the past four seasons.
"Everything is in place to be a contender on the national scene," said Golan, who played college soccer at Duke and graduated from the school in 2001, "and that is something that is really exciting for me ... to be a part of."Saints blow five-run lead in ninth
