Auburn will fill its head coaching vacancy with Tennessee assistant coaches Chris and Kate Malveaux as co-head coaches.

In its first year under Chris’ guidance, Tennessee boasted the SEC’s third-best scoring offense with 140 runs in conference games. The Lady Vols also ranked second in the league in doubles (39), slugging percentage (.540), on-base percentage (.398), and stolen bases (22) in SEC action while finishing third in home runs (38).

The Missouri had a .320 batting average rank second in the SEC in 2021 under Chris. The Mizzou squad finished the season with 91 home runs, 382 runs scored and 184 extra-base hits.
