Louisiana Ragin' Cajun head softball coach Gerry Glasco is likely beaming with pride this today.

Glasco's daughter, Tara Glasco Archibald, was named head coach at Eastern Illinois on Monday.

The sister of the late Geri Ann Glasco, Archibald served as the pitching coach at Eastern Illinois the previous two seasons, after coaching stops at both the University of Georgia and Pinckneyville (Ill.) High School.

Archibald, who becomes the 13th head coach in Eastern Illinois history, takes over a team that went 16-39 a season ago.

Congratulations to Tara: and the best of luck to her, and the Panthers!
