After moving on from an Aggie legend in Jo Evans, Texas A&M has found their new softball coach in Arizona State’s Trisha Ford, as announced on Tuesday.

In six seasons at Arizona State, Ford’s teams never missed the postseason, and advanced to the Women’s College World Series in 2018 and the Super Regionals in 2022. Over her head coaching career, she has amassed a 397-226-1 (.686) record at Saint Mary’s (CA), Fresno State and Arizona State, including a 212-89 (.704) ledger with the Sun Devils. Ford has twice been named the Mountain West Coach of the Year (2015, 2016) and the Pac-12 Coach of the Year (2018, 2022).

Welcome to Aggieland, coach!
