Molli Merrill is entering her third season as an assistant coach and fourth with the team overall after spending one season as an undergraduate assistant coach.

A former Aggie goalkeeper, Merrill works primarily with that position group. She also coordinates the team travel and meals, while overseeing the Aggies’ social media account.

Last season, Merrill helped coach the Aggie defense to a solid season, as the combination of Jeannie Woller and Sara Cobb allowed only 21 goals in 20 matches.

In 2013, the goalkeeping duo of Woller and Natalie Stoven had a 0.91 goals against average, allowing only 21 goals in 22 matches.

“Molli is an incredible addition to our coaching staff, possessing great soccer knowledge and leadership skills,” said USU head coach Heather Cairns. “She works with both field players and goalkeepers and her ability to break down the goalkeeping position both tactically and technically is really special.”

Merrill had a stellar career as an Aggie, as she holds two career records and is among the best in two other categories. Merrill is the career-leader in goalkeeper minutes played, ending her career with 5,716 minutes in the net. She is also the all-time leader in shutouts with 23. Merrill ranks second all-time in goals against average (0.90) and is third in career saves (221). She was named the MVP of the 2011 WAC Tournament, as USU won its first-ever WAC title with the championship game win against Fresno State. She earned first-team all-WAC honors in 2011 after leading USU to a 5-1-1 conference record, ending league action with a 0.28 GAA. Merrill also earned WAC all-tournament honors in 2009. She also earned six WAC Defensive Player of the Week honors during her storied career.

As an undergraduate assistant coach in 2012, Merrill helped guide goalkeeper Ashlyn Mulford to a first-team all-WAC honor, allowing only 11 goals in 20 matches. Mulford recorded seven shutouts in 2012 and ended the season with a 0.57 goals against average.

Merrill earned her bachelor’s degree from Utah State in family and consumer science education in 2013 and is currently pursuing a master’s degree in physical and sport education.
