BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — Southern University hopes they've found the right man to lead their softball team to better days.
Athletic Director Dr. William Broussard has announced Lee Dobbins as the Lady Jags next head coach.
Dobbins has experience on both the Division One and Division Two levels. He helped lead Emory College to a 76-10 record as an assistant over the last two years.
Former head coach Sandy Marshall was fired at the end of the 2013 season.
To make the hire official, Chancellor Dr. James Llorens must approve of the decision.
The Lady Jags have struggled on the field the last two seasons, earning a record of 13-75.
