Women's Soccer : Fall Camp Report

On May 31, 2012, Head Coach John Ross made his second addition to his staff, naming Connor McKee an assistant coach. McKee became the third member of the Huskies' women's soccer coaching staff composed of himself, Ross and Christie Chappell.

"We are very excited to have Connor as part of our staff," said Ross. "He will bring a lot of energy to the staff and is a student of the game - he is always looking to improve himself. His background in coaching will help for a smooth transition into his role with the defensive side of the team. We look forward to him making an immediate impact on the program."

A native of Rapid City, S.D., McKee works mainly with the Huskie goalkeepers and run individual training sessions, along with other team training sessions.

McKee's coaching helped goalie Amy Carr become one of the most decorated keepers in NIU history. Carr finished with 18 shutouts and 282 saves in her career, the second and fourth most in school history, respectively. Her 0.89 goals-against average in 2012 was the best by an NIU keeper since 2007 and her 86 saves in 2013 marked the most in a season by a Huskie goalie since 2006.

McKee came to DeKalb from the University of Sioux Falls, where he was a graduate assistant during the 2011 season for the men's soccer program. There, he trained the goalkeepers, ran skill and fitness sessions and aided in recruiting, fundraising and with compliance for the first-year Division II program.

He started his collegiate career at Elmhurst College in Elmhurst, Ill., where he was a defender for the Bluejays from 2007-08 and helped Elmhurst reach as high as No. 16 nationally. He returned home to his native South Dakota to conclude his college career at Sioux Falls, where he was a team captain his senior season and an All-Great Plains Athletic Conference selection. He also earned the Daktronics NAIA Men's Scholar Athlete Award while playing for the Cougars.

At the club level, McKee has served in various capacities with the Rushmore Soccer Club, South Dakota State Association Olympic Development program and the Dakota Alliance Soccer Club. He owns a United States Soccer Federation "C" license and National Soccer Coaches Association of America state and regional goalkeeping licenses. McKee also serves as the Girls Director of Coaching at Northern Illinois Football Club.
