Eastman named head softball coach at Yavapai College

Former College of the Siskiyous softball coach Doug Eastman has been named head softball coach at Yavapai College, a community college, in Prescott, Arizona.

Eastman flew to Arizona last week for an interview process and facilities tour that lasted three days. He was offered and accepted the position on Thursday of this week.

Eastman said that Prescott is a small city of about 43,000 people and that the community really embraces Yavapai Roughriders sports.

The Roughriders softball program won the NJCAA National Championship in 2009 and 2011. However, the college does not have a team this year. So, Eastman will be have a fresh squad when he starts work in two weeks. Although the squad will be new, he won’t have to start from scratch. The Roughriders already have 11 letters of intent signed, and offer a total of 24 scholarships. NJCAA schools are able to offer scholarships, unlike California community colleges. They also compete for a national championship, unlike California schools.

The actual interview process took seven hours, with two hours spent with the president of the school. Eastman called the time spent with the president “refreshing” and said that it was more total time than any president in his prior 12 years of coaching had spent communicating with him. (more…)
