Wahoos give Joanna Hardin a contract extension, hire new pitching coach

Since it's a slow time of year, I thought I would share that our Charlottesville friends gave their softball coach an extension. Her contract was expiring so they gave her a two year extension - although only one year is guaranteed.

Per the Daily Progress, "Her base salary will remain at $99,197 annually, and she’ll also receive $10,901 of supplemental income. Hardin’s bonus structure remains the same as her original contract, which offers performance bonuses ranging from $2,500-12,400.

"In five seasons leading UVA, Hardin’s teams have compiled an 81-149 overall record and a 30-85 mark in the ACC. Virginia went 15-33 overall and 10-27 in the ACC this spring."

UVA also hired a new pitching coach, Mike Roberts, who spent the last three seasons as the associate head coach at Louisiana as the pitching and infield coach. He has a really solid background, having serving previously as the pitching coach at Washington and Oregon.

Similar to our own Mike Lewis, Roberts has also played Men's Fastpitch at a high level.

Looks like the Hoos are making a real effort to improve in softball. Their stadium is beautiful and they have a solid recruiting class coming in as well.
