Mississippi State announced on Tuesday that Vann Stuedeman’s eight-year run as head softball coach at the school has ended.
Several reports surfaced around noon on Tuesday that Stuedeman and the Bulldogs had agreed to part ways. FastPitch Softball and Rounding Third Softball were among the first outlets to report the news about Stuedeman, then the school announced that the move was official later in the day.
“We are grateful to Vann for eight years of service to Mississippi State softball,” MSU Athletic Director John Cohen said in a statement. “We appreciate her efforts and contributions to the program. We wish her the very best in her future endeavors. We will move forward immediately with a national search to identify our next head coach.”
Cohen did not indicate a reason for the change in the softball leadership.
