SBVC looking for softball coach – again!

San Bernardino Valley College will be posting a vacancy for a women’s softball coach in the coming week, according to Athletic Director Dave Rubio.

Cari Akins, a former standout at Iowa State, lasted just one year. Her successor will be the school’s fifth in as many years.

The turnover could be due to the fact that the position is a walk-on one. So who ever takes the job will have to have another job that pays the bills and has a flexible schedule. No that isn’t easy to find, especially given the current economic climate.

It has been a long time since the program has been competitive but that has to be due in large part to the turnover. The Wolverines improved some last year and should have a lot of returning players so it isn’t an awful situation for the incoming coach, provided the school moves quickly. (Yes that seems to be asking a lot!)

The Foothill Conference isn’t overly strong in that sport either so the Wolverines should be able to compete.
