Nashville SC Adds Goalkeeper CJ Cochran from OKC Energy

October 12, 2020 - Major League Soccer (MLS) - Nashville SC News Release

Nashville SC has added goalkeeper CJ Cochran on loan from USL Championship side OKC Energy as the third string goalkeeper for the remainder of the 2020 season.

Cochran joins fellow goalkeepers Joe Willis and Elliot Panicco on Nashville's roster, while goalkeeper Brady Scott, who was acquired from Germany's FC Köln in August, continues to play for the USL Championship's Sacramento Republic FC on loan.

Cochran was the lead goalkeeper for OKC during the 2020 USL Championship season, starting 13 matches. In 2019, he was the workhorse for Fresno FC, starting 34 regular season matches and leading the Foxes to a USL Championship playoff berth.

The 29-year-old netminder is also very familiar with Nashville and its coaching staff. Cochran spent the 2018 season with Nashville SC's USL iteration, backing up current goalkeeper coach Matt Pickens. Cochran made five appearances across all competitions that season, including two U.S. Open Cup wins. He also played for Smith in 2015 with the NASL's Atlanta Silverbacks alongside current Nashville SC Academy coach Kosuke Kimura.
