ATLANTA–Ehren Earleywine, Georgia Tech’s head softball coach the last three years, was named today as the new head coach at the University of Missouri.
Earleywine, a native of Jefferson City, Mo., compiled a record of 143-55 in three seasons as the Tech head coach, including the 2005 Atlantic Coast Conference title. He also spent two years as the Yellow Jackets’ top assistant coach, helping Tech to five straight NCAA tournaments.
“We thank Ehren for all he did to help build the Georgia Tech program, and we wish him the best in his new position,” said Tech Director of Athletics Dan Radakovich. “Whenever your coaches are sought by other top schools, it’s a sign that your program has been very successful.
“We plan to act swiftly but very thoroughly in hiring an outstanding coach for Georgia Tech. We have a great foundation, and we’re very excited about where we are and where can go.”
