Pro soccer squad taps Kansas soccer assistant


Kansas University soccer associate head soccer coach Kelly Miller was named goalkeeping coach for the National Women’s Soccer League’s (NWSL) FC Kansas City, it was announced by the club Thursday. Miller, who will maintain his responsibilities at KU, will help the team open its inaugural season Saturday, when the Blues take on the Portland Thorns in Overland Park.

Miller completed his 14th season as a member of KU’s staff last fall. He will spend the majority of his time coaching veteran Nicole Barnhart, who has been a mainstay for the U.S. Women’s National Team over the past decade.

Excellent. And "Portland Thorns"? What an excellent name for a soccer team from "The Rose City".
