Former Louisiana Ragin' Cajun softball assistant coach Joe Guthrie has earned a promotion at his current school.

Guthrie was promoted by UAB head coach Jimmy Kolaitis to the title of associate head coach recently.

Entering his second season at UAB, Guthrie was a part of Gerry Glasco's first coaching staff at Louisiana in 2018, helping guide the Cajuns to a 41-16 record, and their 19th-consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance.

Guthrie, who served as a scout for the Miami Marlins from 2006-2007, worked as an assistant for Penn St. (2014-2016) and Bucknell (2017), prior to his one season at UL.
