Head softball coach Beverly Smith has received a 3-year contract extension, South Carolina announced last week.
Smith’s extension will run through the 2025 season, and she was one of three Gamecock head coaches extended through a similar time period. Men’s basketball coach Frank Martin and men’s golf coach Bill McDonald also reached similar agreements.
Now in her 11th season as the Gamecocks’ head coach, Smith owns more than 350 wins and has reached the NCAA tournament in seven consecutive seasons entering 2021. The Gamecocks hosted a regional in 2018 and reached the Super regional round.
In 2021, the Gamecocks currently sport a 20-15 overall record and a 1-11 record in conference play. South Carolina earned their first conference win of the season in a victory over Ole Miss on Sunday that avoided a series sweep.
