Arizona State softball coach Clint Myers is leaving to take over as the head coach at Auburn.

Myers took over in 2006, and from there guided the ASU program to an unparalleled level of success. The Sun Devils went 427-102 (.807) under his leadership, and reached the Women's College World Series seven times, including a pair of national championships in 2008 and 2011.

"This was a family decision... the reason being, my sons will be coaching with me at this new position," Myers said in a statement. "I am thrilled that in the final years of my coaching career that I will be able to mentor and help my sons to start their own college coaching careers."

During his time in Tempe, Myers' teams went 113-59 in conference play, and won the league twice.

"Clint has elevated our program to be one of the best, if not the best, in the nation, the past eight years," ASU athletic director Steve Patterson said. "Because of his efforts, the Sun Devil head coaching position also is one of the best in the nation and we will proceed to hire a great fit for Arizona State that continues the Sun Devil tradition at the highest level.

"Our list of softball highlights is extensive and will serve as a benchmark as we begin our search."

Last season the ASU softball team went 50-12 but was eliminated by Michigan in the WCWS.
