LARAMIE, Wyo. -

University of Wyoming head women's soccer coach Anne Moore has announced the hiring of IIeana Moschos as an assistant coach with the Cowgirl soccer program. Moschos' hiring is subject to UW Board of Trustee approval.

Moschos, 22, comes to Wyoming from Davidson College in Davidson, N.C., where she has been an assistant coach since 1998. In her time at Davidson, she was the goalkeeper coach responsible for training the goalkeepers and field players. She graduated from Wofford College in 1998 with an undergraduate degree in business economics.

Moschos, a native of Dallas, Texas, was a four-year letterwinner Wofford. She was named to the All-Southern Conference Tournament Team in 1997, along with being a NSCAA All-South Umbro selection the previous year. She also earned the Most Valuable Player Award while at Wofford.

She has been actively involved in several instructional camps along the east coast, including camps at the University of North Carolina, UNC-Charlotte and Davidson. Moschos has played on a women's professional team, the Charlotte Speed, as the starting goalkeeper for the past two seasons.

"I am excited that Ileana is joining our coaching staff," said head soccer coach Anne Moore. "Her experience at both the collegiate and professional level as a goalkeeper will definitely be beneficial to our program. With her ties to Texas, specifically Dallas, we hope to draw some of the top players from that area to the University of Wyoming."

"We are very excited with the hiring of Ileana Moschos," associate athletic director Barbara Burke. "In bringing in someone with her knowledge and experience at different levels, it will enhance the level of our program."

Moschos joins Kim Murphy on Moore's coaching staff. Murphy joined the coaching staff this spring after Moore was named head coach.
