Softball Coaching Staff Adds Former Thunderbird Kylee WolfCoach Gray and the Southern Utah softball program have announced the addition of former Thunderbird Kylee Wolf as the newest member of the coaching staff.

“Kylee was such a great example as a player. All the girls looked up to her. She has really learned the game over the last couple years,” head coach Tom Gray said. “The respect she gets from the team and her ability to teach the game are going to be a great addition to the coaching staff.”

Wolf joins the coaching staff after an illustrious four-year career on the Thunderbird softball team.

The Spanish Fork native led Southern Utah University to its first ever Big Sky Conference Championship as a sophomore before the team earned a trip to NCAA Regionals. Wolf was named All-Conference first team as both a freshman and as a sophomore, and earned second team honors following her junior and senior seasons.

Concluding her senior season with a team-high 59 hits, Wolf collected 11 doubles, four home runs, and racked up  24 RBIs for a .343 hitting percentage.

Shifting her talents in a new direction, Wolf looks forward to the challenge of transitioning from a player and a teammate to a coach.

“This is a golden opportunity. It’s hard to go straight from a player to a coach, and a lot of coaches look for assistants with a lot of coaching experience. I’m grateful for the confidence coach Gray has in me,” Wolf said. “I’m excited to join the staff and continue moving in the direction that coach Gray envisions.”

Although it’s a quick transition from player to coach, Wolf brings a wealth of recent playing experience to the Thunderbird coaching staff.

“I bring a lot of playing experience to the coaching staff," Wolf said. "Having just played with the team, I think I had their respect as a player, and I think it will continue as a coach."

Wolf earned her Bachelor’s from Southern Utah University with a degree in exercise science.
