The North Carolina Courage re-signed goalkeeper Casey Murphy to a three-year contract through the 2025 NWSL season.

The U.S. Women’s National Team veteran posted six shutouts in 18 starts during her second season with the Courage in 2022.

“I’m thrilled to hit the field again with all the returning players and can’t wait to meet the new talent coming to the Courage this season,” Murphy, 25, said in a news release Tuesday. “I know our commitment to setting the standard and being the best team in the league will bring out the best in all of us. … I am so pumped to help the Courage win a championship in 2023.”

Murphy was named to the USWNT senior team for both the 2021 and 2022 SheBelieves Cup as well as every FIFA window for competitions ahead of the 2023 Women’s World Cup. She has made 11 starts for the team and holds a 7-2-2 record with seven shutouts.

“Casey has proven over the years why she is one of the best goalkeepers in the world and we are excited to have her sign here for a longer term,” Courage head coach Sean Nahas said. “She’s dedicated to her craft, and this team, and that shows in her continued growth.”
