CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. - Southeast Missouri State assistant soccer coach Kelley Poole resigned from her position on last week to accept the head coaching position at Austin Peay State University this week.

Poole spent two seasons as the main assistant and chief recruiter for head coach Heather Nelson and the Southeast Missouri State Otahkians. In her two seasons, Southeast posted a 26-8-1 record and won its first ever OVC regular season championship in 2001. Her recruiting class for last season included some of the best talent to play at Southeast Missouri State in its three seasons.

"I'm very excited about the job," Poole said. "I think my experience at Southeast has prepared me well for this opportunity. It's an opportunity to start a program and to compete in a conference that I am very familiar with. I really will miss Southeast, as it was a very difficult decision for me to leave."

Poole was a standout player for Nelson at Florida State University. In only one year with the program she set schools records with 29 points and 56 shots, both of which now rank second all-time in a single season at FSU. She holds the Florida State record for all-time game-winning goals with six.
