University of Wyoming women’s soccer head coach Colleen Corbin announced the hiring of assistant coach Kathy Prescott on Friday. Prescott will join the Cowgirls’ coaching staff primarily working with goalkeepers. 

“I’m thrilled to welcome KP to our already talented and dynamic staff,” Corbin said. “It was important to us to bring in an assistant coach who was passionate, motivated, driven, knowledgeable and excited about our culture and the program we are building here in Laramie.  

“KP checked every box and then some.” 

Prescott comes to Laramie from Fordham University. In her two years with the Rams – one of those being a COVID-19 spring season – her goalkeepers boasted a total of five shutouts.  

Prior to Fordham, Prescott coached at the University of Pennsylvania for one season. Before that, she spent two seasons at Bryn Mawr College in addition to a short preseason stint at Colgate University.  

“I’m incredibly grateful to be joining the Wyoming soccer staff,” Prescott said. “I would like to thank Colleen and her staff as well as the administration for giving me the opportunity to contribute to this program as we continue to build a competitive environment. It’s a privilege to join such a dedicated, energetic and passionate coaching staff.” 

Prescott played collegiate soccer at Haverford College. She was the full-time starter her final two years with the Fords. In her last season, Prescott helped her team advance to the NCAA tournament and earned second-team All-Centennial Conference honors. 

She attained a bachelor’s degree in economics and followed that up with a master’s degree in sports business from Temple University.
