Former Alabama Softball Pitcher Lands Assistant Coaching Job
Radford softball announced the hiring of former Alabama softball pitcher Krystal Goodman to its coaching staff on Wednesday afternoon.
Goodman joins Radford College, a public university located in Radford, Virginia, as an assistant coach for the upcoming season.
Goodman transferred to Alabama after dominating JUCO softball, boasting a combined 51-4 record and 438 strikeouts in two seasons at Chipola College in Marianna, Florida.
The 6-foot-1 product of Long Beach, Mississippi, joined the Tide in 2019, appearing in 25 games, 16 of which she started. With over 90 innings pitched, Goodman went 11-1 with a 1.63 ERA.
In her third and final season at Alabama, Goodman pitched in 12 games, but played a significant role in relieving starting pitchers as her 8-1 record was pivotal to the Tide's road to winning the 2021 SEC Tournament and advancing to the semifinals of the Women's College World Series.
Goodman joined the Southern Miss softball program for the 2021-22 season as a graduate assistant. She aided the pitching staff and guided the Golden Eagles to a 29-23 season.
Radford plays in the Big South Conference. Last season, the team finished 12-15 in conference play and 19-29 overall.
