Salmon Relieved of Duties

Oct. 22, 2012

CINCINNATI — University of Cincinnati director of athletics Whit Babcock announced today that Michelle Salmon has been relieved of her duties as women’s soccer head coach and a search for her successor will begin immediately.

Salmon recently completed her fifth season at UC. She compiled a 36-49-10 overall record and 13-36-6 mark in BIG EAST Conference matches as the Bearcats’ head coach.

“I want to thank Coach Salmon for her service to UC,” said Babcock. “She was dedicated to the program and placed a strong emphasis on her student-athletes’ success in the classroom. I wish her nothing but the best in her future endeavors.”

In her first year at the UC helm, Salmon led the Bearcats to a 10-7-3 record and a spot in the BIG EAST tournament. That would be the lone winning mark as the results were back-to-back 8-10-1 records in 2009 and 2010, 6-9-4 in 2011 and 4-13-1 in 2012.

Salmon came to UC from Ball State University where she was a two-time Mid-America Conference coach of the year and had a 26-9-5 record. She led the Cardinals to two conference titles in her two years there. Prior to that, she was the head coach for six seasons at the University of Maryland-Baltimore County.
