Indiana University Vice President and Director of Athletics Fred Glass announced the hiring of Temple University Head Coach Amanda Janney as the new head coach of the Indiana field hockey program on Monday, Feb. 9, 2015. Janney’s experience includes a pattern of great success as both a player at Wake Forest and on the U.S. Indoor National Team, and as a head and assistant coach.

Joining the Hoosiers after 10 years as the head coach at Temple, Janney has compiled a 114-94 record with 10 straight postseason appearances. Last season, Janney led the Owls to a No. 11 NCAA RPI ranking and a finish of No. 14 in the NFHCA Coaches Poll.

At Temple, Janney took over a team that had not turned in a winning record since 1992 and transformed it into a consistently successful program. In those 10 seasons, Janney coached five Atlantic 10 Players of the Year, 23 All-Conference selections, three All-Americans, three Temple Student-Athletes of the Year and 16 Regional All-Americans.

Janney played collegiately at Wake Forest University, scoring 21 goals and tallying 17 assists as a center forward while graduating Cum Laude in Sociology. As a member of the USA Indoor National Team, she earned a gold medal at the Women’s National Indoor Championship in 2010.

Prior to Temple, Janney spent two years as the First Assistant Coach at the University of Pennsylvania, helping the team to a 23-12 overall record and a 2004 Ivy League Championship. Additionally, she was the head coach of USFHA Pennsylvania High Performance in Philadelphia, leading the team to a USFHA Women’s National Championship in June 2014.
