Carly Wynn has been named the Gopher softball associate head coach after most recently spending 2016 through the 2020 shortened season at Arizona State University as an assistant coach, head coach Piper Ritter announced Wednesday.
"I am excited to announce Carly Wynn as my first hire to the gopher softball coaching staff," Ritter said. "Carly brings a wealth of knowledge with her to Minnesota and is an exciting addition to our program. She was an outstanding player for the Florida State Seminoles where she amassed several offensive records. She was applauded for her scholastic achievements and was proficient in all aspects of the game. Her knowledge of the game and her experience recruiting student-athletes for multiple conferences will be an asset for Gopher softball. She is a great fit for this organization and will provide an immediate positive impact."
Wynn helped Arizona State to a 135-57 record with a 2018 Women's College World Series appearance in her time as an assistant there. She was the team's lead recruiting coordinator, camp director and was in charge of alumni outreach. On the offensive side, Wynn assisted with all aspects of hitting and was in charge of short game, slappers and baserunning. On the defensive side, she coached an outfield that saw two 2019 All-American honorees in Morgan Howe (First Team) and Kindra Hackbarth (Third Team).
