Auburn softball coach Clint Myers announces retirement

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.”
