[OKLAHOMA] Matt Potter, who took Washington State to the NCAA Tournament in three of the last four years, has been named the new head coach at Oklahoma.  

In nine seasons with the Cougars, Potter racked up a school-record 88 victories. The back-to-back trips to the NCAA Tournament in 2008-09 were a first in program history and the Cougars advanced to the second round in 2009 and 2011.

Average home attendance more than doubled under Potter and Washington State drew a school-record 856 fans per match in 2011.

"Matt Potter's record at Washington State speaks for itself," WSU Director of Athletic Bill Moos said. "Under his leadership, the Cougar soccer program reached new heights and has a strong foundation in place moving forward."

Potter, who replaces Nicole Nelson, inherits a Sooner team that was 7-13-0 in 2011 and returns 10 starters.

“I believe in the potential of the players, the soccer program and the opportunity to build on the work of the previous staff,” added Potter.  “As a coach, I look forward to being in a position to compete both on and off the field with the resources, support and people that care in the growth of student athletes. This is something that is clear at the University of Oklahoma.”
