Texas Tech’s head softball coach has resigned.

On Tuesday, Texas Tech Director of Athletics Kirby Hocutt announced that Shanon Hays has resigned from his duties.

Hays just completed his fifth season with the Red Raiders, where he accumulated a record of 186-96 during his tenure as head coach.

“I have enjoyed very much my tenure here at Tech and I am confident the administration here will find a coach that will continue the winning tradition my staff and I have been able to establish,” said Hays. “I am very thankful to have coached all the great student-athletes that have been in our program the last five years as well as my awesome staff.”

Hays previously coached softball at Lubbock Christian University, where his team took home an NAIA championship. His softball teams at Tech had not made the NCAA postseason the past two seasons.

Tech has begun a national search to find Hays’ replacement.
