Elizabeth Woerle opens her second season as an assistant coach for the Ohio University soccer program in 2014. She joined head coach Aaron Rodgers' staff in July 2013.

Woerle's first season as an assistant coach for the Bobcats saw Ohio finish the 2013 regular season with its first non-losing record since '09 (7-7-5) and post five road victories - the most wins away from home for the program since '04. Ohio tallied 26 goals in 2013 - the program's most in a decade.

The native of Coon Rapids, Minn., played professional soccer with 1. FC Lübars of the Frauen Second Bundesliga in Germany during the 2011-12 and 2012-13 seasons. Along with Rodgers (multiple season in the United Soccer Leagues) and assistant coach Allison Whitworth (multiple seasons in Women's Professional Soccer), Woerle completes a coaching staff which is the only one in the Mid-American Conference comprised entirely of former professional players.

While in Germany, Woerle competed for 1. FC Lübars in domestic competition. She scored one goal, finding the back of the net in the 90th minute of a 3-1 win over Magdeburger FFC on Oct. 23, 2011. The midfielder also played 23 minutes in a domestic cup match against FSV Gütersloh.

Prior to her time in Germany, Woerle was a standout player at Drake University. Woerle scored 22 goals -- eight of which were game-winners -- and dished out eight assists. She was named to the All-Missouri Valley Conference Freshman Team (2006), Second Team (2008), and First Team (2009). She was a significant participant on the 2006 team which won the MVC regular-season championship and qualified for the first round of the NCAA Championship.
