ATHENS, Ohio — The Ohio women’s soccer team added a new coach Wednesday, as Cortney Wiesler is set to become the Bobcats’ newest assistant coach.

Ohio will be the fourth school Weisler has coached for since 2014, as her most recent coaching position was at the University of Incarnate Word in 2018, where she was also an assistant.

Prior to her tenure at Incarnate Word with the Cardinals, Weisler held an assistant coaching position at the University of Creighton in 2014, where she helped lead the program to their best start in school history. She also has junior college experience, as she was a coach for Murray State College in Oklahoma.

As a coach for the Aggies, Weisler helped start the first women’s soccer program in school history, raised $27,000 towards the women’s soccer program, and helped lead the Aggies to the semifinals of the Region V tournament.

Weisler also currently coaches for the United States Soccer Federation Region III Olympic Development Program.

Before coaching, Weisler worked as the director of soccer operations at the University of Kentucky from 2009-2014. She helped create a sport-specific injury prevention program during her tenure while also being largely accountable for the well-being of the athletes. She also achieved her master’s degree in kinesiology and health promotion from the University of Kentucky in 2009.

Weisler also has experience playing soccer, as she was the team captain for West Virginia University Tech from 2005-2007 and earned All-Conference honors as well. She had plenty of success before college as well, as she helped Hempfield High School win the 2000 Pennsylvania state championship.
