Confident Coaches, Confident Coaching
We are thrilled to welcome former Michigan Wolverines head softball coach Carol Hutchins, to the 2024 Women Coaches Symposium as this year's Jean K. Freeman Keynote Speaker!
The winningest coach in NCAA softball history, Hutchins guided the Wolverines to an NCAA title and 22 Big Ten Conference titles and solidified Michigan among the top softball programs in the country. She was inducted into the National Fastpitch Coaches Association Hall of Fame in 2006. With a career record of 1,707-551-5 over her 39 total seasons as a NCAA head coach, Hutchins is the winningest coach in NCAA softball history.
"Hutch" was a part of the Michigan softball program since 1983 when she joined the staff as an assistant coach under Bob DeCarolis. She moved into the head coach position in 1985 and, in each of her 38 head coaching seasons, has continued Michigan's tradition of softball success. Michigan has never suffered a losing season in program history.
