Ole Miss softball coach Mike Smith

OXFORD, Miss. — Ole Miss softball coach Mike Smith has resigned.

Smith, who has been the head coach at Ole Miss since 2015 had been on administrative since November, under what the university describes as a “non-financial, external audit” of the softball program. On Sunday, he officially stepped down.

The Oxford Eagle reports prior to Smith’s arrival in Oxford, the Rebels had never qualified for an NCAA Tournament. Since the start of his tenure, the team has qualified for four straight NCAA Tournaments, including twice hosting regionals and twice advancing to the Super Regional round.

Assistant coach Ruben Felix will step in as interim head coach for the upcoming 2020 season.
