Auburn hires away Clint Myers, Arizona State's two-time national champion softball coach

By  | 

Auburn's search for a softball coach has ended by stealing away one of the nation's best.

A little less than two weeks after the end of the Women's College World Series, the Tigers poached Arizona State's Clint Myers away from the Sun Devils in an audacious move that should send shockwaves through the college softball world.

"I am very excited to begin what I expect to be a challenging, rewarding and fulfilling life change with my move to become the head softball coach at Auburn University," Myers said in a release. "This opportunity to coach with my family and to become part of what I feel is a total community family in the town of Auburn was one I absolutely could not pass up."

Myers, a two-time national title winner, led Arizona State to national championships in both 2008 and 2011, took the Sun Devils to seven Women's College World Series appearances in eight years and compiled a 427-102 record during his time in Tempe.

"When we began our search for a new softball coach, the goal was to find a proven winner who could help us compete for championships," Auburn athletic director Jay Jacobs said. "We could not have found a coach who better fits that criteria than Clint Myers, who has consistently reached the pinnacle of success in college softball."
