West Texas A&M University announced on Monday their head softball coach had resigned.

According to WTAMU, Kevin Blaskowski resigned his position "effective immediately."

“The University community joins me in thanking Coach Blaskowski for his 13 years of service to West Texas A&M University,” President Dr. Walter Wendler said. “We appreciate the hard work, commitment and dedication he brought to WT in building a strong and winning softball team.”

WTAMU said Blaskowski restarted the Lady Buff softball program in 2006 after a 24-year absence of the program. Under his guidance, WTAMU said he had amassed a 467-246 record in 12 seasons as a coach at WT.

Day-to-day duties of the softball program will be taken over by Associate Head Coach Candace Abrams.
