LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Lubbock Christian University has announced that softball head coach Larry Hays has resigned and Daren Hays, Larry's son, has accepted the position.
"Lubbock Christian University is grateful for the time and effort Larry Hays placed into our program to stabilize it as a nationally ranked program," said Dr. L. Ken Jones. "Larry and I knew that his role with the program would be short term, and I hoped all along that we could entice Daren to be the individual to take over once Larry made the decision to step down, which he has chosen to do at this time. We are so thankful to have the Hays family as part of our university and community.
Daren becomes the third head coach of the Lady Chaps softball program. Daren returns to the Lubbock Christian University athletic department after spending over ten seasons at Texas Tech University. Daren spent eight seasons as an assistant baseball coach with the Red Raiders before becoming the Director of Baseball Operations following the 2007 season.
Sports Director Pete Christy will have the latest coming up tonight on KCBD NewsChannel 11.
