Michelle Gardner was hired as IU’s new softball coach Monday. She replaces Stacey Phillips, who resigned last month.
Gardner took over a new program at Nevada in 2001 and spent the past six seasons building the Wolf Pack into a Western Athletic Conference powerhouse. Last year, she was named the conference coach of the year after leading the Wolf Pack to the NCAA regionals and a school-best 44-18 record. Gardner was 187-176 overall at Nevada.
Gardner had previously served as an assistant at Arizona State, Florida State and Bowling Green and pitched for Michigan from 1984-88. The Sun Devils reached the College World Series with Gardner on staff. Before coaching, she competed with several nationally-ranked Amateur Softball Association teams and was a participant in the 1996 Olympics Trials.
