Nancy Evans, a former Honda Award winner as NCAA Player of the Year in softball, was named an assistant coach on DePaul's softball staff on Aug. 4, 2010.
She replaces pitching coach Cat Osterman, who resigned following the 2010 season.
In 2009, Evans was an assistant coach on the Dutch National Team and helped guide the Netherlands team to its first European Championship title in 19 years. She was the pitching coach for the Dutch National Team in the 2010 World Championships in June.
Evans played on three NCAA champion teams at Arizona from 1994-98, and her 124-8 career pitching record is No. 1 in NCAA softball history. She is also third all-time in career wins.
Evans was invited to the USA Olympic Team tryouts in 2000.
She played professionally from 1998 to 2005, helping Tampa Bay capture the championship of the WPSL (Women's Professional Softball League) in 1999. She was a three-time all-star in the NPF (National Professional Fastpitch) league and most valuable player of the 2004 all-star game.
The two-time, NCAA first team All-American and NCAA first team Academic All-American served as an assistant coach at Arizona from 1998-2007. In that span, she helped lead the Wildcats to three national championships, one runner-up finish and a pair of third-place finishes.
She was an integral part of the Wildcat staff that was named NCAA Coaching Staff of the Year in 2007. Evans has been inducted into the Arizona Sports Hall of Fame as both a player and a coach.
