UTA Director of Athletics Jim Baker announced on Tuesday the beginning of a national search for a new head coach to lead the Maverick softball program and its continuing pursuit of competing for Sun Belt Conference championships and aspirations to be a national power in the NCAA Tournament. The Mavericks are coming off a season in which they returned to the postseason for the first time since 2003 after receiving an at-large bid into the National Invitational Softball Championship. The team reached the Sun Belt Championship semifinals for the first time since joining the conference in 2014. UTA’s 32-win season was the best since 2011 and has set the standard for a program that has been on the rise for the last five seasons. The expectation remains high with a wealth of talent in place to lead the program. – Read More
