During Alabama Softball’s busy offseason

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — When Stanford ruled out Alabama softball last May, it broke multiple streaks and ended the season early for the Crimson Tide by Alabama standards. And a packed offseason began for Alabama head coach Patrick Murphy and the program.

“It’s been a busy summer, but typical of a Division I coach — you just never know what’s coming around the corner,” Murphy told BamaCentral. “I guess I’d rather have it like this than a boring summer.”
