NACOGDOCHES, Texas - Stephen F. Austin softball coach Gay McNutt announced Wednesday the hiring of Staci Ramsey as an assistant coach. Ramsey comes to the Ladyjack program after two seasons as an assistant at Ole Miss.
"I'm very excited to add Staci to our staff," McNutt said. "She was an outstanding player at Alabama, and she brings a real passion for the game to our program."
Ramsey spent the 2009 and 2010 seasons on staff at Ole Miss, helping the Rebels to a 52-56 two-year record playing in the highly competitive SEC. She coached hitting and worked primarily with outfielders and catchers. Additionally, Ramsey directed the Ole Miss softball camps.
Prior to her stop in Oxford, Ramsey spent one season as an assistant at Charleston Southern. She helped coach the Buccaneers to the third-best team batting average in the Big South Conference in 2008.
Ramsey began her college coaching career as a student assistant at Alabama in 2006, following a stellar four-year playing career with the Crimson Tide. In addition to multiple All-SEC selections, she earned All-America honors in 2006 when she helped lead Alabama to an SEC championship and an appearance in the Women's College World Series. The Crimson Tide made the NCAA Championships in all four of Ramsey's seasons in Tuscaloosa and reached the WCWS in three of those campaigns.
Ramsey served as the head travel coach of the Birmingham Bullets 18 and under team in 2005-06 and spent the 2007 summer playing professionally for the Akron Racers.
The 2006 SEC Academic Honor Roll selection graduated from Alabama with a bachelor's in human environmental sciences in 2007. Ramsey is a Houston native who played her prep ball at Westfield High School.
