Associate Head Women’s Soccer Coach Kylee Flynn, a former University of Tennessee All-American (Kylee Rossi), joined Krissy Turner’s staff as an assistant coach at Monmouth University in March, 2012. Flynn was promoted to associate head coach in July, 2016.
Since Flynn’s arrival, the Hawks have captured three consecutive Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) regular season championships in their first three years in the league. Overall, the team has posted a 26-2-2 record in league play, while securing 18 shutouts in the 30 matches.
Flynn joined the Hawks after two seasons as an assistant at The College of New Jersey. At TCNJ, Flynn helped guide the Lions to a combined 31-7-3 overall record and a pair of NCAA Tournament appearances. She has also assisted with the New Jersey Olympic Development Program U13 and U14 teams. A New Jersey Youth Soccer Association (NJYSA) licensed coach, Flynn also spent time as an Admissions Associate at her former prep school, The Pennington School, which also generated Monmouth standouts Ali Kliment and Gianna Russo.
A native of Pennington, NJ, Flynn started her coaching career as a student assistant coach at her alma mater, UT, in 2009, following her stellar playing career. A two-time All-American as a Lady Vol and four-time All-Southeastern Conference (SEC) performer, Flynn, graduated as UT's all-time leading scorer with 102 points on 43 goals and 16 assists. She was named the SEC Offensive Player of the Year in both 2006 and 2007, and a 2007 Third-Team Soccer Buzz All-America.
A two-time Hermann Trophy preseason watch list honoree, she was tabbed a Soccer America and Soccer Buzz Freshman All-American in 2005 and twice named a Top Drawer Soccer National Team of the Season selection (2006, 2007).
Flynn, who was a three-time first-team All-SEC player, was added to the SEC Academic Honor Roll in 2006, 2007 and 2008, and spent three years in the United States National Team player pool. In 2005, Flynn was part of the U-18 National Team Pool, advanced to the U-21 Pool in 2006, and competed in four matches for the U-21 National Team in England in 2007, registering two goals.
The Pennington School-product, who tops the Tennessee record books with 15 game-winning goals, sent the Lady Vols to the 2007 NCAA Sweet 16 behind her tally in the 104th minute.
The only Lady Vol to lead the team in scoring in each of her four seasons at Tennessee, Flynn was a preseason candidate for the Lowe's Senior CLASS Award in 2008.
