Dobson Tabbed LSU Softball Assistant Coach

Sports

POSTED: Tuesday, June 28, 2011 - 2:51pm

UPDATED: Tuesday, June 28, 2011 - 2:53pm

Howard Dobson has accepted an assistant coach position on the Tiger softball staff announced Tuesday by head coach Beth Torina. He will serve as the program’s hitting coach.

Dobson, who currently is one of 24 coaches named to the 2011-12 United States Women’s National Team coaching pool, spent the previous four seasons as the head coach of Southern Miss. During his tenure, he coached seven All-Conference USA performers highlighted by Megan Hill.

The four-time All-Conference USA pick set eight offensive program records, including hits (205), RBIs (151), runs scored (148), home runs (48) and total bases (398). She also garnered NFCA All-Midwest First-Team accolades, the program’s first recipient since the 2000 season.

“I’m extremely thrilled and very excited to have someone of Howard’s caliber join the LSU program,” Torina said. “He brings a wealth of knowledge, experience and has a great track record of creating a successful offense everywhere he has been. A great person with a positive approach, Howard also will be able to add a new perspective to a group of very talented hitters. I know he will help us succeed at the highest level.”

Prior to Southern Miss, Dobson served as an assistant coach at Oklahoma for five seasons. He helped the Sooners continue to develop their reputation as not only a Big 12 offensive powerhouse but a national offense juggernaut.

OU topped the Big 12 in scoring and also ranked among the league’s top two in batting average during all five of his seasons in Norman. The Sooners had seven players secure NFCA All-American honors in addition to 15 NFCA All-Midwest Region selections and 20 All-Big 12 honorees. Norrele Dickson, Heather Scaglione and Kristin Vesely racked up multiple NFCA All-America selections under Dobson.

Dobson played an instrumental role as OU made a pair of trips to the Women’s College World Series trips in 2003 and 2004. The Sooners also made four NCAA Super Regional runs (2003, 2004, 2005, 2007) during their five consecutive trips to the postseason sparked by a 55-win campaign in 2007 which is tied for third in the OU record books.

Before Oklahoma, Dobson contributed to the establishment of Houston’s softball program in 2000. The Orange, Texas, native had players notch 10 All-Conference USA accolades in two seasons fueled by Kristen Glowacz’s 2002 C-USA Freshman of the Year award. The 2002 Cougars paced C-USA in hits (480), runs scored (279), slugging percentage (.448), RBIs (244) and home runs (47).

Dobson began his coaching career in the Pelican State with stops at Southeastern Louisiana, McNeese State and Barbe High School in Lake Charles. He directed his team at Barbe to a 5A state championship and gained valuable experience working at collegiate skills camps along with coaching on the international level. In the summer of 1999, his international team won the German Open.

A former all-conference performer at Panola College in Carthage, Texas, Dobson went on to finish his collegiate baseball career at McNeese State where he graduated with a degree in health and human performance and English in 1997.

Dobson and his wife Katharine have a five-year old son, Trip.
