Tati Korba heads into the 2014 season in her tenth year at the helm of the Goucher College Women's Soccer program. Her 2012 squad tied a school record in wins (12) while shutting out the opposition 12 times.
Korba joined the school’s coaching staff prior to the 2005 season and served as head coach in a part-time capacity for two years. She is the first full-time head coach in the program’s 19-year history.
Korba began her coaching career in 2001 as the assistant coach at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. After one year as the assistant, Korba was elevated to head coach in the 2002 season and guided the Thoroughbreds to their first winning record in six years. After leaving Skidmore in 2002, Korba worked for both the NY/NJ Metrostars and DC United of the MLS, and she also spent two years as the head soccer coach at The Madeira School in McLean, Va.Read Full Bio

She competed in the NCAA Division III Tournament all four years of her career, including being a starting forward on the 1997 team that finished second in the country. Over her four-year tenure, Korba collected numerous awards including All-Conference, All-State, and NSCAA All-Region. After an impressive senior season at William Smith, Korba was named an NSCAA All-American as well as the New York State Player of the Year, and the UCAA Conference Player of the Year.
During the summers of 2003 and 2004 Korba played as a forward in the semi-pro WPSL as a member of the Maryland Pride.
