Murray State Athletics is searching for a new softball coach, after falling short of the OVC tournament championship this weekend. Athletics Director Allen Ward says current coach Jay Pyron will not return next season. Pyron finishes his career at Murray State with an overall record of 80-79 and 43-37 in OVC play. Ward did not give a reason for Pyron's departure.
Murray State had its 2012 season come to a close Saturday morning, dropping its second game at the OVC Softball Championships in a 5-3 defeat against Tennessee Tech in the final game of the elimination bracket.
