UNC field hockey hires legendary player Erin Matson as head coach a month after her graduation

Feb 1, 2023

University of North Carolina field hockey announced Erin Matson, the program’s most accomplished player ever, as its new head coach Tuesday.

Matson is just 22 years old and graduated from UNC in December.

While playing on four NCAA championship teams and five ACC championships and becoming the all-time scoring leader in both ACC history and NCAA tournament play, she earned a degree in advertising and public relations with a minor in coaching education.

The accomplishments don’t stop there. She was named UNC’s team captain three times and has been a member of the U.S. National Team since the age of 17. At the beginning of 2022, she was the top scorer at the Pan American Cup in Chile.
