MGCCC softball’s Eric Neel resigns as HC, no coaches left on staff

An extremely bizarre situation going on at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College where the softball program currently has no coaches during the middle of a season.

According to a release sent out by the school, this afternoon MGCCC has announced the resignation of Head Softball Coach Eric Neel. On top of that, both assistant coaches Ally Raines and Danielle Barton are missing from the athletic website.

One source close to the situation tells News 25 the bulldogs have no coaches under hire or on staff and currently are unable to practice.

The next games on the schedule are Tuesday at LSU Eunice, but that double header appears to be in jeopardy.

Gulf Coast is 3-3 so far this season, coming off last year’s perfect mark of 14-0 prior to COVID-19 in Coach Neel’s first year with the program.

Per the school’s release, the search for a new head coach is already underway.
