College football coach looks back on 50 years of Title IX

HOUSTON, Texas – The associate head soccer coach at Rice University speaks about the impact of Title IX on her life and career. Megan Kinneman is from the greater Houston area. She played as a goaltender at Louisiana State University, where she broke several school records, including becoming the all-time record holder for career saves. After college, Kinneman played professionally for a few years, including for the Houston Dash.

After retiring from the pro circuit, Kinneman served as a collegiate-level coach, including on staff at LSU, where she helped lead the team to an SEC championship. During the 2018 SEC tournament, she coached LSU goaltender Caroline Brockmeier to tournament MVP honors.

In 2017, Kinneman, along with 29 other women soccer players, played a game on Mount Kilimanjaro, which according to the Guinness Book of World Records is the highest-altitude soccer game of all time. This game was part of the Equal Playing Field Initiative, a non-profit organization that addresses gender inequality in sport and promotes athletic development for women around the world. Thursday, June 23, 2022 marks the 50th anniversary of Title IX, the landmark anti-discrimination law that helped level the playing field for women athletes across the country. Kinneman is now in her third season coaching with Rice.
