Categories: General News Tags: Athletics

Courtney Breault is the 10th head coach of the Charlotte softball program. She joins the 49ers from Clemson University, where she served as an assistant coach for five years.

“Courtney Breault is a highly accomplished coach and player who is the perfect fit to lead Niners softball,” said Mike Hill, Charlotte 49ers director of athletics. “From her experience playing for Nebraska in the Women’s College World Series to her outstanding coaching success at Clemson and Furman, she has the confidence and energy required to take our championship program and lead it to even greater heights. She is a fantastic recruiter, teacher, and most importantly, a coach who builds strong relationships with her student-athletes.”

Breault, at Clemson University, worked primarily with the Tigers’ infielders and served as the softball program’s recruiting coordinator. She helped guide Clemson’s program, which began in 2020, to NCAA Regional appearances in each of its four full seasons in existence and back-to-back Super Regional berths in 2022 and 2023.

“I am extremely honored to have been chosen to lead the Charlotte softball team into this next chapter,” said Breault. “I want to thank Director of Athletics Mike Hill and Executive Associate Athletic Director Chris Thomasson for their belief in me and their commitment to the success of the Charlotte softball program. I’m excited to get to work and build on the tradition of excellence.”
