Texas A&M softball coach Jo Evans won’t be back

COLLEGE STATION – Jo Evans will not return for a 27th season as Texas A & M’s softball coach.

A&M announced on Monday that it will not renew Evans’ contract that expires this year. The Aggies wrapped up Evans’ final season 31-28 overall with a 6-18 record in SEC play. A&M was eliminated Sunday from the NCAA Tournament with a 20-0 loss to top-ranked Oklahoma.

“Coach Evans has been a tremendous ambassador to our university and softball program for the last 26 years, but we have decided that our softball program needs to go in a new direction,” athletic director Ross Bjork said. “We are deeply appreciative of her efforts while building on our softball program’s winning tradition with three Women’s College World Series appearances.
“Jo is a first-class person, and we wish her nothing but the best in her future endeavors.”

Evans took over a once-distinguished program in 1997 and led the Aggies to three Women’s College World Series over her 26 seasons at College Station, but failed to win a national title in that span.

“Being the leader of this program for the past 26 years has been the greatest honor of my professional life,” Evans said. “I have put my heart into this team and in return, I leave with amazing relationships, memories, and experiences that have shaped me for most of my life.
