Kathy Brawn will enter the 2020-21 academic year as the interim head soccer coach at Mount Holyoke College

Bringing an incredible amount of head coaching experience to Mount Holyoke College, Brawn was most recently the head women's soccer coach at Colgate University. During her time at Colgate, Brawn amassed 312 career wins including 11 conference titles, six NCAA Championship Tournament appearances and helped coach five All-America selections, 31 All-Region honorees, and 137 student-athletes that collected All-Conference recognition. 

Over the course of her career, Brawn has been named the United Soccer Coaches Northeast Region "Coach of the Year" twice, and collected three conference coach of the year honors. Upon reaching the 300-win plateau in 2018, Brawn was among the top 30 active winningest Division I women's soccer coaches in the country.

Brawn's success as a head coach continued off the pitch, as she helped her student-athletes achieve a cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 or better for the entirety of her 29-year career with the Raiders. Additionally, Brawn's student-athletes collected 181 conference academic honor roll honors and three conference scholar-athlete of the year awards. Twice in her career, a women's soccer student-athlete earned Colgate's 1819 award, the institution's highest honor for a graduating senior.

Brawn is no stranger to being involved with the campus community, as she served on the Colgate Division of Physical Education, Recreation & Athletics Committee on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, as well as serving on the Colgate University Academic Affairs Board twice during her 28-year tenure in Hamilton. Brawn was also an instructor in Physical Education at the University for four years, and chaired both the Admissions Advisory Committee and the Drug and Alcohol Education Committee on campus.

Brawn is a 1988 graduate of Ramapo College of New Jersey and earned a degree in Anthropology and Sociology.
