"He is exactly what this place needed," says women's soccer coach Felice Duffy. "He's new and fresh. He comes from a school that does well athletically and academically, he has a lot of experience, and he believes Yale can be a leader."
Associate Director of Athletics Barbara Chesler sees Beckett's appointment as one more positive addition to what she describes as "a team of vibrant, modern thinkers, including President Levin," who have recently come to Yale and who will be making important institutional changes.

"Ninety percent of our job is recruiting," says Duffy. "We do more recruiting than Division I schools, because we have to try harder."

After years of hard work on and off the field, former UConn women's soccer midfielder Felice Duffy has developed into the determined and prepared person she is today.
The former Husky is now the criminal prosecutor in the United States Attorney's office in Bridgeport, Conn., where Duffy helps prosecute cases involving drug trafficking and narcotics-related offenses.Currently, she is working with a program to educate about guns and gangs.
"It's extremely interesting," said Duffy.
Before entering UConn, Duffy was a resident of Storrs and went to E.O. Smith High School.As a volleyball player in high school, Duffy never imagined she would play soccer in college after graduating in 1977.
Her father worked on the UConn campus.One day she went to see him, but she got lost and happened to run into a men's soccer game.
"After I saw that, I knew I had to get a women's team going," Duffy said.
So at 17 years old, Duffy picked up soccer during the summer, and began her Title IX fight to begin a women's soccer team at the University of Connecticut.At the time, there were only three women's teams across the country.
After a two year battle, she got herself a soccer program in 1978, which began the next year.
In 1981, Duffy became the first All-American for the women's soccer team.Along with this achievement, she was a two-time team MVP and a 1982 member of the U.S. National Team.
During the first three years of existence, the women's soccer team record was 41-13-3.With Duffy's help, she ended her career total with 27 goals and 15 assists.As of today, Duffy is still 19th in women's soccer history with 69 career points.
In 1984, Duffy began coaching Yale soccer.Within time, she coached the team from last place to first.During this time, Duffy was pursuing her PhD in psychology, and finished her dissertation in 1991.After 10 years, Duffy left Yale to pursue law school at Quinnipiac in 1996.
"Everyone always told me that I would make a good lawyer," she said.
Since graduating in 1999, Duffy has worked at some of the most prestigious law firms in the country.
"I am happy with what I am doing today," Duffy said."It is always interesting."
Duffy attributes her hard work and preparation throughout the years to her success today.

Husky Hardcores Jeff Jacobs -> Dorrance's Game Isn't Auriemma's

That's what former Yale women's soccer coach Felice Duffy told SI, calling Dorrance's generalizations about women "window dressing."Dorrance has such a hold on the sport, Duffy said, that if he said the reason for the 15 titles was cream cheese everybody would rush to the store.

Last spring, coach Felice Duffy had two major aims in mind for her squad-forgetting the previous year's 5-10 record, and increasing the offensive output of a team that averaged one goal a game.
...
Accordingly, Duffy installed a new offense which featured three forwards instead of the usual two.
