Southern names Dobbins new softball coach on the Bluff
Southern University athletics director Dr. William Broussard has announced the appointment of Lee Dobbins as head softball coach.
Dobbins is expected to begin his tenure as the second head coach in SU softball history once Broussard's recommendation is approved by SU Chancellor Dr. James Llorens.
"We're excited to have Coach Dobbins join the Jaguar Nation," said Southern athletics director Dr. William Broussard. "With his extensive experience as a Division I assistant and Division II head coach, and his reputation as an excellent teacher and tireless recruiter, we expect great things moving forward from Jaguar softball."
During two seasons at Emory, Dobbins helped the Eagles amass a 76-10 overall record while leading the team's pitching staff to a 1.43 ERA in 2012.
"Southern has a great athletic tradition and I see a lot of potential in the softball program being not only the best in the SWAC, but in the region and the nation," said Dobbins. "Personally, the Baton Rouge area is a great spot to put down roots. With great leadership in Chancellor Llorens and Dr. Broussard in athletics, the potential of building something great was a big draw for me."
