Boston College hires Taylor Schram as associate head coach
Schram comes to the Heights after spending the last two years as an assistant coach at Dartmouth.
“I’m thrilled to welcome Taylor to Boston College,” said Lowe. “She brings championship experience from her time in the Big 10 and with the US U-20 National Team where she won a World Cup with [assistant coach] Jami Kranich. As a coach, she is a relentless recruiter and great teacher of the game.”
Prior to Dartmouth, Schram spent the 2018 season as an assistant coach at Florida Gulf Coast and helped lead the Eagles to a 13-4-2 record and a spot in the ASUN Conference semifinal. From 2016-2018, Schram served as an assistant coach at Binghamton. In her time with the Bearcats, Schram helped turn the program around from a last-place finish in the America East in 2016 to an 11-4-4 mark and a conference championship in 2017 along with America East Staff of the Year Honors.
“I am thrilled to be joining the Boston College Family,” said Schram “I am grateful to Jason for the incredible opportunity to be a part of the women’s soccer program here at BC. The program has a long-standing tradition of excellence, both on and off the field, and I look forward to contributing to continued successes.”
Schram, a FIFA U-20 World Cup Champion in 2012, was a four-year starter on the Penn State women’s soccer team and captained the squad as a senior. She helped the Nittany Lions to three Big Ten titles and four NCAA Tournament appearances, including a runner-up finish in 2012. During her time in State College, Schram was a two-time All-Big Ten selection, a member of the 2012 NCAA All-Tournament Team, a two-time All-Region honoree and a First Team Academic All-American as a senior.
After graduating from Penn State in 2014, Schram spent two seasons as a graduate assistant at West Virginia where she won two Big 12 titles and helped the Mountaineers make the Elite Eight in 2015 and finish the season ranked second in the country.
“Our players are already excited to start learning from her,” Lowe added. “Her career is on a fast track having recently been in the mix for several head coaching jobs and I’m grateful we were able to bring her to the Heights as we prepare for the new season.”
Schram earned her USSF “B” license in May and also holds a United Soccer Coaches Association Premier Diploma.
