A former University of Michigan player where she twice earned Big Ten Pitcher of the Year honors, Schoenly was an assistant at her alma mater and at Penn State for a combined 11 years (1995-2006) before assuming the head coaching duties at Miami (Ohio) in 2007. In six seasons in Oxford, Schoenly recorded a program-record 188 victories and two MAC Championships.
"I am honored and humbled for the chance to lead the Buckeye softball program, one I have respected for decades," Schoenly said. "I would like to thank Gene Smith, Heather Lyke, and the entire search committee for this incredible opportunity. What makes this university special are the people, the tradition, and the excellence. My goal is to continue that legacy within our softball program."
