Looper Out in Iowa City

Marla Looper has resigned her position as the head softball coach at Iowa.

Looper was unable to maintain the success of former coach Gayle Blevins, who led the Hawkeyes to 16 NCAA Tournament appearances and four trips to the College World Series. In eight years as coach, Looper led Iowa to an overall record of 172-247 and just 68-113 in Big Ten play.
