Third Year Head Coach Continues To Build Rebel Program
Becky Fletcher enters her fourth year as an assistant coach at Ole Miss in 2013.
With the Rebels, Fletcher is the recruiting coordinator in addition to working with the midfielders and defenders. She is also in charge of equipment, is the academic and marketing liaison and organizes community service for the team.
Each season the defense has continued to improve for the Rebels with the 2012 campaign extending that trend. Last season, the Rebels posted eight shutout victories, including a stretch of four consecutive shutouts on the way to an 8-0 record, the best start in school history. The start helped set the tone for a season that saw Ole Miss return to the SEC Tournament for the 14th time in school history and advance to the quarterfinals with a shutout victory over LSU in the first round.
In 2011, the Ole Miss backline helped the team post seven shutouts while the team finished the year with a 8-10-1 overall record (4-7 SEC). In addition, she helped coach defender Meredith Snow and midfielder Dylan Jordan to All-SEC honors.
During her first season with Ole Miss in 2010, she helped lead the Rebels to a 7-9-4 overall record and a 3-5-3 mark in SEC play. Defender Alix Hildal was named SEC Offensive Player of the Week after recording a hat trick against Vanderbilt, while midfielder Mandy McCalla, who led the team in assists with six, was named to the SEC All-Freshman team.
After two seasons as the head coach at Tennessee Tech, Fletcher was hired as an assistant coach for the Ole Miss soccer program on May 25, 2010.
In her two seasons as the head coach of the Golden Eagles, Fletcher led them to back-to-back Ohio Valley Conference tournaments after not having made an appearance since 2003. She also directed TTU to the 2009 OVC Tournament championship game, its first appearance since 2000.
No stranger to the Southeastern Conference, Fletcher was an assistant alongside Mott at Auburn from 2003-08. She helped Karen Hoppa's team reach a number of achievements during her time on the Plains, including three SEC West titles, four trips to the NCAA Tournament and a record of 58-34-11 (.617).
After Mott left for Texas, Fletcher was tabbed as Auburn's recruiting coordinator and helped land three nationally ranked classes.
The Columbia, S.C., native started as an assistant at her alma mater, Erskine College (Due West, S.C.), in 1998 before spending three seasons as an assistant at Tennessee Tech. She went back to Erskine as the school's head coach for one year before joining the Auburn staff. She has also served as a member of the Olympic Development Program staff for Region III since 1997, helping develop some of the top soccer talent in the Southeast.
Fletcher holds a bachelor's degree in physical education from Erskine College (1998) and a master's in health and physical education from Tennessee Technological University (2001).
