Auburn Hires 2-Time National Champion Clint Myers

AUBURN, Ala (WIAT) After the firing of Tina Deese as head softball coach Auburn Athletics Director Jay Jacobs said he felt that the program needed to go “In a different direction” a championship Direction.

Tigers did just that today.

The new head Softball coach Clint Myers led Arizona State to a pair of national championships during his 8-year tenure with the Sun Devils and made the trip to the WCWS every year but once…and in that year fell one game short in the Super Regional.

In his time in Tempe, ASU averaged 53 wins a year.

“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,” Director of Athletics 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. Anytime you can hire a coach who has won two National Championships and been to the Women’s College World Series seven out of eight years, it’s obviously a huge win for your program. No less important is the fact that Coach Myers’ student-athletes have also been consistent winners in the classroom. I am delighted to welcome Coach Myers and his wife, Katie, to the Auburn family. One of the things I learned about Coach Myers during this process is how important family is to him. That will make him a great fit at Auburn.”
