As we reported would happen, UL co-head softball coach Stefni Lotief has resigned her position after 12 years at the helm.

UL released an official statement on Thursday night, confirming the nature of the report.

Lotief, who made the decision because she wants to spend more time with her family, will still remain with the program, as an administrative assistant, and also as a volunteer coach.

Lotief’s husband, Michael, who has been on the staff since 2001, and has been co-head coach since 2003, will now have the sole title of head coach, while Joy Webre-LeBlanc, an assistant last season, will be elevated to associate head coach.

A search will take place to name a third member of the coaching staff.

Lotief, who was UL’s first ever All-American as a player in 1989, compliled 604-145 career record as a coach, winning seven Sun Belt Conference Coach of the Year awards, and four Louisiana Coach of the Year awards.

Stefni and Michael Lotief are scheduled to join us today, to talk about her decision. Listen to the interview at the beginning of “Footenotes”, shortly after 9 am, and on “Bird’s Eye View” later on Friday afternoon.
