TROY – Troy University softball head coach Melanie Davis has resigned her position effective immediately, Athletic Director John Hartwell announced Monday.

“On behalf of Troy University, I would like to thank Melanie Davis for her two decades of service and dedication to the University and the countless student-athletes she mentored,” Hartwell said. “We wish Melanie nothing but the best in her future endeavors.”

Davis compiled a 780-509-4 record over her 21 seasons at Troy and led the Trojans to a pair of conference titles and one NCAA Regional berth.

“I had the pleasure of appointing Coach Melanie Davis in 1993,” Troy Chancellor Dr. Jack Hawkins, Jr., said. “Initially, she was head coach of both volleyball and softball. In 1996 she devoted herself to her first love—softball. In 21 years at Troy University, Coach Davis coached Troy softball to 780 wins, but her value extended far beyond the field. She developed a generation of students into outstanding young women who have excelled in all walks of life. I hold Coach Davis in the highest regard and wish her the best as she enters the next chapter in her life. While she will be missed on campus, she will always be a Trojan.”

Troy will begin a national search immediately to find Davis’ replacement.
