Missy Dickerson fired; Ole Miss begins softball coaching search

Ole Miss officials announced on Monday that the contract of softball head coach Missy Dickerson would not be renewed.

“I would like to thank Missy for the time and effort she put into the Ole Miss Softball program,” said Ole Miss Executive Associate Athletic Director Lynnette Johnson. “We will begin the search for a replacement immediately.”

During her six seasons in Oxford, Dickerson led Rebels to the first three SEC Tournament appearances in school history and posted just the second winning season ever at Ole Miss with a 29-27 mark in 2010. She finished her Ole Miss career with a record of 140-193 and a mark of 48-118 in SEC play.

She holds a 252-249 record in nine seasons as a head coach, including three seasons at Texas A&M Corpus Christi. Ole Miss closed out the 2011 campaign with a 14-39 mark and posted a 3-23 record in league play. (May 10, 2011)

Ole Miss to host 2011 SEC Softball Tournament

As the Lady Rebels prepare to host the 2011 Southeastern Conference Softball Championships May 12-14, the Ole Miss Athletics Department announced renovations to the Ole Miss Softball Complex and ticket packages for the three-day tournament.

This will mark the first time Ole Miss has hosted the eight-team, single-elimination tournament, which began in 1997. Arkansas served as host of last year’s tournament, while Alabama claimed the championship. Over the past decade, Ole Miss has hosted SEC Championships in cross country, men’s and women’s tennis, soccer, track and field and women’s golf. (December 13, 2010, Page 3B)
