[MISSISSIPPI WOMEN] Matt Mott, the top assistant coach at the University of Texas for the last four years, was named the new women’s head coach at Mississippi.
Mott is only the second head coach in program history. He replaces Steve Holeman, who left to become the head coach at Georgia after guiding the Ole Miss program since its inception in 1995.
“We went through an extensive search process and had a very strong pool of candidates," said Executive Associate Athletics Director Lynnette Johnson. "Matt Mott came on campus and already had a plan in place to take Ole Miss Soccer to the next level. He was passionate and prepared. It was evident that he was the perfect fit for our head coaching position. I am so excited that Matt and his family will be joining our Ole Miss family.”
Mott previously assisted Karen Hoppa at Auburn from 1999-2005. He also worked as an assistant at his alma mater, UCF, and was the head women’s coach at Division III Hilbert College.
