Auburn, Ala.--Corey Myers, Auburn’s associate softball head coach for the past three and a half seasons, has resigned from his position, effective immediately.
The announcement came on Thursday night.
“It is with great sadness today that I announce that I will be stepping down as associate head coach of the Auburn University softball team,” Corey Myers said. “It became clear to me that my relationship with my family needs to be my top priority right now and therefore felt that I must step away.
“I thank the Auburn family for everything they have done for my family and myself,” said Myers, who was in charge of the team’s pitching staff. “We absolutely love living on the plains and will forever feel like Auburn is our home.”
Myers arrived at Auburn to coach with his father, Clint Myers, who is head coach. Another Myers son, Casey, is a volunteer assistant coach who rejoined the team for the 2017 season after spending 2016 with the San Diego Padres of Major League Baseball.
Auburn’s other assistant coach, Scott Woodard, made the move with Clint Myers to AU from Arizona State.
The Tigers return to action with a three-game SEC series Friday-Sunday at Georgia.
