    Wow, I guess he sees the tide turning in softball with the Pac-12 getting weaker each year and the SEC getting stronger each year.

    Tide was turning for his team also. But a great hire for Auburn. Surprised he would leave ASU. Wonder what Coyle will do now.

    That coach is used to a team of 26 players. He will have a hard time with only 18-20 players and lower quality softball facilities.

    Arizona State softball facilities aren't that great. On television they look like a high school field, like many of the Pac-12 fields.

    Loved playing for Coach Myers even tho it was only for a year. He truly helped me become a better player & person. We will miss him greatly.

    Paying him $180,000. Same that he makes at ASU. Family is the reason, not money.

    Nice addition for Auburn, but have to wonder how long he will be there, not exactly a young pup.
