The difference a coach can make… Auburn softball

Clint Myers previously led Arizona State to two NCAA Championships but now it’s Auburn softball’s turn as he became its second head coach in program history, on Friday, June 14, 2013.
In only his second year at Auburn while claiming SEC coach of the year here’s a few 2015 stats:

  • Program-best 56 wins
  • Won first SEC tournament title in school history
  • First WCWS appearance (lost to Florida in semifinals)

Didn’t play travel softball and only threw fastball while in high school. Coach Earleywine heard about her from a friend. I guess this goes to show that you don’t need travel or fancy recruiting to play D1 in a big way (being over 6 foot tall and throwing over 70 mph helped I’m sure).
