Korba moves from Goucher to Stevenson

Tati Korba will leave Goucher to take over as the head coach of the Stevenson Mustangs women’s soccer team.

After 12 seasons as the head coach of the Goucher Gophers women’s soccer program, Tati Korba will take over as head coach at Stevenson University, Mustangs Director of Athletics Brett Adams announced on Tuesday. She will begin her tenure as the new head coach at Stevenson on July 3.

“I would like to thank Brett Adams, (Director of Soccer) Graeme Millar and the rest of the search committee for this opportunity and for their generous time during the hiring process,” Korba said. “Everyone that I have met at Stevenson has been so welcoming, and it became immediately obvious to me that there is a tremendous amount of pride in Stevenson University and the athletic department.

“I have been fortunate to have known and worked with Graeme for many years, and he has established Stevenson women’s soccer as one of the strongest programs in the Mid-Atlantic region. I could not be more excited to join the Mustang family, to work alongside Graeme and the dedicated professionals in the department, and to continue and build upon the tradition of excellence that exists in the women’s soccer program.”

In 12 seasons she has accumulated 71 victories, including a program-record 12-4-2 record in 2012. She took over as a full-time head coach in 2007, becoming the first full-time head coach in the program’s history. Korba also coached previously at Skidmore College, where she was an assistant coach in 2001 and eventually elevated to head coach in 2002. She also played and coached at the semi-professional level with the Maryland Price of the Women’s Premier Soccer League (WPSL).

“We are excited that Tati will be joining us to lead our women’s soccer program,” said Adams. “I want to thank Graeme for all of his hard work in leading the search for our next women’s soccer coach, and I believe that in Tati Korba, we have an experienced, veteran leader who can build upon the success that our women’s soccer program has enjoyed under his leadership.”

After Stevenson men’s soccer coach Andrew Bordelon left Stevenson, Millar took moved from coaching the women’s team to take over the men’s team while holding a new position as the Director of Soccer at the school. Korba took over as the women’s head coach at Goucher in 2005 and ended up becoming the program’s all-time winningest coach.

“What stood out to myself and the rest of the search committee during the interview process was Tati’s passion and drive to take leadership of a successful program and make them better to compete every year in the NCAA Tournament,” said Millar, who guided the women’s soccer program from 2007 until this past fall before being named Stevenson’s Director of Soccer and taking over as head coach of the Mustang men’s soccer program. “She greatly values leadership and team culture, and Tati will be an outstanding leader for this program. I am excited to place the program in her hands and to work with her moving forward.”

A national search for Korba’s successor at Goucher will begin immediately.

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
