Jake Cottage was named the second head coach in the Randall University women’s soccer program’s history on May 1, 2018. Cottage has spent several seasons as a collegiate assistant coach while also coaching club soccer at the Oklahoma Energy soccer club and serving as the head boy’s coach at Bishop McGuinness High School.
Athletic Director Mark Berokoff says the athletic department is “extremely excited to get a coach of this quality. Coach Cottage has proven himself at the college level and at the high school level.”
Coach Cottage is originally from Raunds, England. He came to America in the fall of 2007 on a soccer scholarship to the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma. Cottage played his first three seasons at the University of Science and Arts, then transferred to Southwestern Christian University for his senior year. He was a standout student athlete throughout his collegiate career winning several team and individual awards. Some of Coach Cottage’s highlights include an NAIA Sooner Athletic Tournament Championship and National Tournament appearances, as well as being named to NAIA 1st Team All-Region and NCCAA All-American teams.
Coach Cottage graduated in May 2012 with a Bachelors in Sports Management. He also has a Masters in Sports Administration from East Central University and a USSF C coaching license.
“I want to thank Coach Berokoff and Randall University for the opportunity to be the new head women’s coach,” says Coach Cottage. “Randall University has a quality athletic department and I can’t wait to continue the growth of this great program on and off the field.”
Coach Cottage and his wife, Stephanie, live in Yukon, Oklahoma.
