[HARVARD WOMEN]
Tracey Leone, the former U.S. international who coached the USA to the world championship at the inaugural U-19 Women's World Cup in 2002, has been named the new women's coach at Northeastern, replacing Ed Matz, who led to become the women's coach at UMass.

"To say that we are thrilled to welcome a coach and person the quality of Tracey would be an understatement," Northeastern University Athletics Director Peter Roby said. "Tracey brings world class qualifications to our women's soccer program and to Northeastern. We are excited for her and for our student-athletes."

Leone, a three-time national champion midfielder at North Carolina, most recently spent three seasons as an assistant coach at Harvard, where she teamed up with her husband and head coach, Ray Leone, to help lead the Crimson to back-to-back Ivy League championships in 2008 and '09.

Including the stint at Harvard, Leone has spent 13 seasons coaching with her husband at multiple institutions. She was an assistant coach for Ray at Arizona State from 2005-06 and at Creighton from 1991-92. Leone left Creighton in 1993 to start Clemson's women's soccer program as head coach, and Ray joined her as assistant coach a year later.

Leone served as the head coach for the under-19 women's national team from 2000-03, winning a world championship in 2002, and then serving as an assistant coach on the U.S. women's national team during the 2004 Olympics in Athens, Greece, winning a gold medal.
