AUBURN, Ala. — Auburn softball associate head coach Corey Myers announced his resignation from the program late Thursday night.
Myers was in his fourth season as an assistant for the Tigers under his father, head coach Clint Myers. His resignation is effective immediately.
“It is with great sadness today that I announce that I will be stepping down as associate head coach of the Auburn University softball team,” Myers said in a release. “It became clear to me that my relationship with my family needs to be my top priority right now and therefore felt that I must step away.
“I thank the Auburn family for everything they have done for my family and myself. We absolutely love living on the plains and will forever feel like Auburn is our home.”
Myers was promoted to associate head coach last August following the Tigers’ second straight trip to the Women’s College World Series. He was in charge of Auburn’s pitching staff during his time on the Plains, arriving with his father in 2014.
Through the first two months of the season, Auburn’s pitchers rank No. 9 nationally with a team ERA of 1.32. Ace pitcher Kaylee Carlson threw a perfect game — the second in school history — two weekends ago in a nonconference matchup against Ohio State.
With Myers’ resignation, Auburn softball only has one paid assistant coach, Scott Woodard. Volunteer assistant coach Casey Myers, Corey’s brother, is a volunteer assistant. Casey Myers returned to the program this season following a year with the San Diego Padres organization.
No. 5 Auburn softball opens a three-game weekend series Friday evening against No. 18 Georgia. The game will be streamed live on SEC Network+.
