Yolanda McRae is in her second season as an assistant coach with the Cavalier softball program, having joined the staff in August 2011. At Virginia, McRae is responsible for coaching the hitters and assisting in recruiting efforts.

No stranger to the ACC, McRae comes to Charlottesville after spending the 2010 and 2011 seasons as an assistant at Maryland. The Terrapins finished third in the ACC last season and hosted a NCAA regional for the second straight year.

Prior to her stint in College Park, McRae had three successful seasons at Georgia Tech. In 2009, the Yellow Jackets won the ACC regular season and tournament titles, as well as a NCAA regional championship title. During her time in Atlanta, McRae helped recruit one of the strongest outfields in the ACC, as well as the nation.

Before her time at Georgia Tech, McRae spent the 2006 season as a volunteer at Georgia, her alma mater, where the squad earned a top-10 national ranking.

A native of Dublin, Ga., McRae is a 2005 graduate of the University of Georgia, where she earned her bachelor's degree in health and physical education. She played one season there, helping the Bulldogs to their first SEC title. She was a two-year letterwinner at Georgia State before transferring to Georgia.
