Matt Potter - Head coach
After three seasons at the helm of the Oklahoma soccer program, head coach Matt Potter has begun to see his vision for the team take shape. A proven leader and builder of successful programs, Potter arrived at OU in December 2011 with the goal of positioning the Sooners as one of the nation's elite soccer teams.
In Potter's third season at Oklahoma, the Sooners took a huge step forward. Despite being picked to finish last in the preseason Big 12 poll, Oklahoma earned 10 wins on the way to its first NCAA Tournament berth under Potter.
Oklahoma posted victories over five ranked teams on the season, most notably No. 6 Florida on August 29. The team's strong start led to its highest ranking in program history, a No. 15 spot in the NSCAA poll. After a tough stretch of Big 12 play, the Sooners were able to rally for a Halloween night win over No. 14 Kansas before taking their first two matches of the Big 12 Tournament. They finished as runners-up in Kansas City and earned a trip to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2010.
Brandi Vega - Assistant Coach/Camp Director
Brandi Vega joined the Oklahoma soccer coaching staff as a volunteer assistant starting in the 2015 season and completed her first year as an assistant coach in 2016.
In 2016, Vega aided the Sooners to arguably the best season in program history, which featured a school-record 14 wins and the program's first-ever victory in the NCAA Championship. The Sooners accumulated multiple awards on the season, including a program-record six All-Big 12 accolades.
Paul Hart - Assistant Coach
Paul Hart joined the Oklahoma soccer coaching staff as an assistant coach in February 2017 and will serve as the goalkeeper coach.
Hart, a former professional goalkeeper, comes to Norman from the University of San Francisco where he spent the last two seasons as an associate head coach and goalkeeper coach. While Hart was at USF, the Dons went 15-22-2, with his goalkeepers posting six shutouts over the two years.
