Casey Brown was hired in March 2020 and is in her first year as the Douglas N. Brush Head Coach of Women’s Soccer at the University of Pennsylvania.Brown came to Penn from Holy Cross, where she was named the 2019 Patriot League Coach of the Year after leading the Crusaders to their best season in nearly two decades as they reached their first Patriot League Tournament since 2000. Holy Cross earned 14 points in conference play last fall, the most in program history, and its second-place regular-season finish tied for the highest in program history. Holy Cross posted its best Patriot League record (3-1-5) since 2000 and just the third overall winning record since 1999 (5-4-8). The four total losses tied for the least in the program’s 37-year history, and the 16 goals allowed were the least conceded by any Holy Cross women’s soccer team.
A woman who played at the highest levels of the game, Becky Edwards was hired as an assistant coach for the University of Pennsylvania women’s soccer program in February 2020.
Edwards came to Penn after spending the previous year as a graduate assistant coach under Mark Krikorian at her alma mater, Florida State University. The move represents a homecoming for Edwards, who grew up in nearby Downington (Pa.) and enjoyed a decorated youth career at Downingtown West High School as well as with the West Chester Predators club program.
