Sarah Tompkins (Franklin) was named an assistant coach in the Illinois State women's program and will work with the Redbirds' goalkeepers.
Tompkins was a graduate assistant at Carson-Newman (Tenn.) for the past two seasons – she started her college career at the NCAA Division II school in 2010 before transferring to Division I Tennessee-Martin for her final two seasons.
"Sarah brings a good deal of both playing and coaching experience to our program, having both competed on and having coached for championship winning programs," Illinois State coach Eric Golz said in a news release. "In her work at Carson-Newman, she helped develop a nationally competitive program while having a large hand in coaching, operations and recruiting. Her goalkeeping experience as both a player and a coach will have an immediate impact on our program."
