Former Ohio State assistant coach Danielle Henderson will be the new assistant coach of the Stanford softball program, head coach John Rittman announced on Tuesday.
Henderson served as an assistant coach with the University of Massachusetts, her alma mater, for four seasons before joining the Buckeyes coaching staff, where she stayed for the past two years.
In addition to her coaching experience, Henderson was one of the greatest strikeout pitchers in NCAA history, tallying 1,343 strikeouts over four years and breaking 25 school records at UMass. She also won an Olympic gold medal as part of the U.S. softball team that competed in Sydney in 2000.
Henderson will be replacing Trisha Ford, who left her assistant coaching role to become the head coach of the Fresno State softball team.
