Pinkerton Named Head Softball Coach At Tulsa

July 26, 2000

TULSA, Okla. - Jamie Pinkerton, the assistant softball coach at the University of Virginia, has been named the head softball coach at the University of Tulsa as announced by Tulsa Athletic Director Judy MacLeod. Pinkerton, a native of Broken Arrow, Okla., had served as the top assistant coach at UVa for the past two seasons. He is a 1997 graduate from Tulsa and also served as an assistant coach for the Golden Hurricane from 1994 to 1997.

Pinkerton becomes the third head coach in the history of the Tulsa softball program, which was established in 1993. In addition to coaching collegiately at Virginia and Tulsa, Pinkerton also served as an assistant coach at the University of Louisiana-Monroe for one year.

Pinkerton's ties to Oklahoma lie deeper than The University of Tulsa. He was an assistant coach at Claremore-Sequoyah High School helping that team to a state runner-up finish in 1994. He also coached the Oklahoma Mustangs, an ASA travel team, for four years, guiding them to three national championship berths.

"To have an opportunity to coach at an NCAA Division I institution, in your hometown, at your alma mater is such a dream come true," said Pinkerton. "My main goal will be to continue to build on what is being built at TU, and work to make Tulsa softball a great program. After talking with the players, I am even more excited to be coming home."

"I'd like to thank the University of Virginia for giving me the opportunity to further my skills as a collegiate coach. I had two terrific years in Charlottesville and wish the 'Hoos continued success," said Pinkerton.
