Last Modified: Wednesday, May 28, 2014 11:54 AMMcNeese softball coach Mike Smith will be named the head softball coach at Ole Miss, sources confirmed to the American Press on Wednesday.
Smith had a 112-51 record in his three seasons with McNeese and led the Cowgirls to back-to-back Southland Conference titles in 2013 and 2014.
McNeese failed to reach the NCAA regionals in both seasons, losing in the Southland Conference tournament and missing out on an at-large bid.
Smith flirted with other job opportunities outside of Lake Charles in 2012 and 2013 as well.
