Shorter University’s softball team has a new head coach as the school announced the promotion of assistant Danielle Brewer in a release Wednesday.
The change comes after former head coach Jessie Homesley left earlier this summer to become the head coach at Christian Brothers University in Memphis, Tennessee.
“Danielle is a solid coach who is ready and excited for the challenge to be head coach of softball,” Shorter interim athletic director Aaron Kelton said in the release. “She will continue the great success the softball program has had for many years.”
Brewer joined Shorter’s softball coaching staff in 2016 as an assistant after beginning her coaching career as a graduate assistant at Auburn University. While there she was a part of Auburn’s historic run to the Women’s College World Series and runner-up finish in 2016.
“I am extremely grateful and blessed to be having this opportunity at Shorter University to be the head softball coach,” Brewer said in the release.
A native of Orlando, Florida, Brewer began her collegiate career at Pensacola State College before finishing at the University of Central Florida.
While at UCF, Brewer was named an NFCA All-American Scholar Athlete Award recipient and was a member of the Conference USA Commissioner’s Academic Honor Roll.
