Corey Myers Abruptly Resigns From Auburn Softball Program

SON OF HEAD COACH CLINT MYERS CITES PERSONAL REASONS

A week of headlines the Auburn softball program would like to forget continued late Thursday night with the abrupt resignation of Tiger assistant coach Corey Myers.

“It is with great sadness today that I announce I will be stepping down as the associate head coach of the Auburn University softball team,” Myers said in a prepared statement. “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.”

Myers added, ““I thank the Auburn family for everything they have done for my family and myself. We absolutely love living on The Plains and will forever feel like Auburn is our home.”

Myers arrived at Auburn with the hiring of his father in 2014 serving as pitching coach.  He was promoted to associate head coach last August.

Auburn is on the road this weekend for a series at Georgia.
