CORKERY

Head Coach • 4th Season • West Texas A&M, ‘93 • 65-33 The 2011-12 season is Matt Corkery’s fourth as the head coach at American University and his seventh overall on the staff. Corkery has accumulated a 65-33 career record at the helm in his four years, including a 32-10 mark in Patriot League play. In his three seasons, his squads have earned two Patriot League regular season championships, two appearances in the Patriot League Championship Game, two WNIT berths, and he was honored with the 2010 Patriot League Coach of the Year award. Corkery has coached one Patriot League Player of the Year, three Patriot League All-Rookie Team honorees, five All-Patriot League selections, and 21 Patriot League Academic Honor Roll picks.

Corkery By the Numbers In his 3+ seasons at head coach at American - 65 wins (65-33 record) - 34 home victories (34-9 in Bender Arena) - 32 Patriot League triumphs (32-10 record) - 21 Patriot League Academic Honor Roll selections - 5 All-Patriot League picks (Michelle Kirk - 2009, 10; Liz Leer 2010, 11; Lisa Strack - 2011) - 3 Patriot League All-Rookie Team honorees (Ebony Edwards 2009; Lisa Strack - 2009; Alexis Dobbs - 2011) - 2 Patriot League Regular Season Championships (2010, 11) - 2 Patriot League Championship Game appearances (2010, 11) - 2 WNIT berths (2009, 10) - 2 20-win seasons (22-10 in 2009-10; 22-9 in 2010-11) - 1 Patriot League Player of the Year (Michelle Kirk - 2010) - 1 Patriot League Coach of the Year honor (2010)

Corkery has already etched his place in the Patriot League record books with his .670 career winning percentage, which is second alltime in conference history. Kevin Morris, who coached at Fordham from 1993-95, owns the best career winning percentage in Patriot League history with his .678 mark. Additionally, with a victory over Brown last December 31, Corkery became the fastest coach in program history to reach the 50-win plateau as it took him only 76 total games to that point. The 2010-11 season was a successful campaign for Corkery’s Eagles, as they earned a share of their second straight Patriot League regular season crown with a 10-4 record. AU reached the Patriot League Championship Game for the second straight season after winning at Lehigh, the league’s two-time defending champion, in an overtime thriller in the semifinals. American finished with 22 victories on the season, matching the 2009-10 team for the second-most single-season wins in program history. The 2010-11 squad also set history with its 11-game win streak from November 28, 2010 through January 29, 2011, which matched a program record. During that span, the Eagles captured the Hawk Holiday Classic with victories over Binghamton and Brown. AU also extended its home win streak to 14 games with a midseason victory over Holy Cross, a mark that tied another program record.

12

The 2009-10 campaign, Corkery’s second as the head coach, was a historic season for the Eagles as they finished Patriot League play with a 13-1 Patriot League record, their best ever conference record. This 13-1 mark earned AU a share of the Patriot League regular season championship. American’s 22-10 overall record gave the Eagles only their fourth ever 20-win season, and the 22 triumphs were the second-most in school history. As a result, AU was rewarded with its program-record third straight postseason berth and Corkery was tabbed as the conference’s coach of the year, American’s second-ever honoree. In Corkery’s inaugural season of 2008-09, he led American to a 19-12 record, which included the program’s second consecutive postseason appearance. The Eagles’ 10-5 non-conference record was the best in program history, and their 19 total victories were the most since the 1997-98 campaign. The Eagles defeated two NCAA Tournament teams, Drexel and Lehigh, during the season.

In addition to on-the-court success, Corkery has helped bring increased interest to the program. The Eagles have set new attendance record in Bender Arena twice during his tenure, the first time occuring on February 7, 2009, when 1,177 fans saw the Eagles defeat Lehigh, 65-56. A year later on February 13, 2010, 1,291 spectators came out to Bender to watch American roll 82-47 past Colgate. “We are pleased with the progress that Matt and his staff have made with our women’s basketball program over the last three years both on and off the court,” commented Director of Athletics and Recreation Keith Gill. “He is a great teacher of the game and his passion for this team will translate into continued success for this program. We’re excited for what this season and the future will bring.” Corkery was named to his current position on May 19, 2008 after serving as AU’s associate head coach during the 200708 campaign, which saw the Eagles earn the program’s first-ever Patriot League regular season championship and berth in the WNIT. In 2007, he was elevated from assistant coach/recruiting coordinator to associate head coach. With the promotion, Corkery assumed additional responsibilities both on and off the court. Corkery joined the Eagles in 2004 after spending three

American University Women’s Basketball seasons as the associate head coach at Division II Emporia State (Kan.). During his tenure with the Hornets, Corkery helped guide the squad to a 63-25 record and No. 2 rankings nationally in both the 2001-02 and 2003-04 seasons. Corkery served as an assistant coach at Stephen F. Austin University from 1999-2001. During his tenure, the Ladyjacks won consecutive Southland Conference titles and made successive appearances in the NCAA Tournament. In 2000, the Ladyjacks advanced to the second round of the NCAA Division I Tournament as a 12-seed. Corkery’s squad recorded a 54-11 record during his tenure at Stephen F. Austin. From 1996 to 1999, as head coach at Howard College (Texas), he led the Lady Hawks to three top 10 rankings in the National Junior College Athletic Association polls and an overall record of 90-12. In 1998, Corkery was named the NJCAA Region V Coach of the Year, as his squad compiled a 34-3 record and finished in third-place in the NJCAA National Tournament. Corkery earned a Bachelor’s degree in

education in 1993 and a Master’s of sports and exercise sciences in 1996 from West Texas A&M University. While with the Lady Buffs, Corkery worked his way up from student assistant coach to graduate assistant and eventually earned a full-time assistant coaching position. As an assistant, Corkery mentored a Buffs squad that went 28-3, won the Lone Star Conference title and was ranked as high as No. 4 in the NCAA Division II national rankings in the 1995-96 campaign. The team’s record during Corkery’s tenure as an assistant at West Texas A&M was 120-32. A native of Whitharral, Texas, Corkery currently resides in Washington, D.C.
