Less than a month before the fall season began, Derek Greene was named head coach of the women’s soccer team after the retirement of former coach Ronnie Woodard. Greene has been an assistant coach with the Commodores since February 2010. Despite several injuries, the team finished with an 8–11 record and defeated previously unbeaten SEC rival LSU. Midfielder Cherrelle Jarrett was named to the 2011 SEC Women’s Soccer All-Freshman Team.
