Jimmy Kolaitis has been named assistant coach for the Arizona State softball program.
The Alabama native makes the move to Tempe after two seasons as the head softball coach at the University of Alabama-Birmingham but is no stranger to the West Coast, having served as assistant at the University of Oregon for five seasons before taking over at UAB.
"We are extremely excited to have Jimmy join our staff," head coach Trisha Ford said in a release. "He brings a wealth of knowledge and will be a huge asset for us from the recruiting standpoint. He will continue our focus on getting the best local talent here to ASU and has extensive ties across the nation.
