Myers hired as Auburn softball coach

AUBURN, Ala. -

Auburn has hired Clint Myers as the Tigers' head softball coach.

Athletics director Jay Jacobs announced the move on Friday.

Myers comes to the Plains from Arizona State, where he advanced to seven Women's College World Series in eight years, and never failed to reach at least a Super Regional.

He won two national championships, in 2008 and 2011.

"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. Thank you for giving me and my family this "Alabama Adventure". We hope that you will enjoy the ride with us for years to come."

The Bismarck, N.D., native averaged 53 wins per season with the Sun Devils, including two 60-win seasons.

"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."

Before ASU, Myers coached Central Arizona College for 19 years, winning the NJCAA National Championship in 2002.
