Corey Myers joined the Auburn softball staff Aug. 16, 2013 as assistant coach and oversees the pitching staff.
Last season, Myers guided a pitching staff that had a 3.59 ERA combined with 56 wins, 16 complete games and 10 shutouts. The 56 wins set a new Auburn single-season record as his pitchers threw over 400 innings with 221 earned runs, 283 strikeouts and only 203 walks, leading Auburn to its first Women’s College World Series appearance and first SEC Tournament championship.
Lexi Davis finished at the top of the team with a 26-3 record, nine of those wins coming in SEC play. Davis’s 26 wins in 2015 was the second-most in a single-season by any Auburn player in program history.
In 2014, just his first season in the Orange and Blue, Myers coached his pitchers to the most wins since 2005 (42). In 62 games, his pitchers threw 391 innings and tallied 285 strikeouts. Only 182 earned runs were given up as the duo of Lexi Davis and Marcy Harper continued their strong Auburn careers.
Both Davis and Harper combined for a feat that will stand alone for some time as the two hurlers combined for three consecutive no-hitters during the non-conference season. The feat had never been accomplished in Auburn history and was only the second time in SEC history.
Myers spent 2013 season as assistant coach and director of player development for the Birmingham (Ala.) Thunderbolts 18 Gold softball team. From 2009-2012, Myers owned and operated the CM Baseball & Softball Academy in Chandler, Ariz.
Myers also served as volunteer coach working with infielders and hitters for Arizona State softball from 2007-08, helping the Sun Devils to the 2008 NCAA championship.
In 1999, Myers was the fourth player taken in the first round of the MLB draft, going to the Arizona Diamondbacks. Myers also played for the Los Angeles Angels and Chicago Cubs organizations from 1999-2007.
