Auburn softball head coach Clint Myers is retiring after five seasons with the Tigers, the university announced on Wednesday.
In his five years leading the program, Myers went 205-54-1 and made two Women’s College World Series appearances in 2015 and 2016. He also won two SEC tournament titles in 2015 and 2016 as well. Auburn had never advanced past a regional before Myers’ arrival.
“After 40 years of coaching and reflecting on the importance of spending quality time with my wife, my children, and my grandchildren, I have decided to retire from a sport that I love dearly and which has brought so much joy to me,” Myers said. “I have had the chance to coach many great student-athletes. I have seen them grow to be outstanding contributors to society. My time in coaching has been a source of great pride.”
