STARKVILLE – Mississippi State softball assistant coach Alan Reach resigned on Wednesday.

The 35-year old native of Pelham, Ala., has been a part of Vann Stuedeman’s staff since her arrival in 2011. Reach also served on Georgia’s staff from 2003-04 and was the head coach at Tuscaloosa (Ala.) County High School from 2005-11.

Reach departs to begin working for his family’s business. His final day at MSU will be Oct. 31.

“It’s a move for my family,” Reach said in a statement from the university. “I have truly enjoyed my time at Mississippi State and will miss Vann, (assistant coach) Beth (Mullins), the players and the family atmosphere of the program so much.”

State advanced to the NCAA Tournament each year with Reach on staff. The Bulldogs produced a school-record 51 home runs in 2013 under his tutelage.

I have covered Mississippi State in some capacity since 2004 and joined the Daily Journal staff in 2013. I enjoy short walks on the beach, performing concerts in my car and watching professional wrestling.
