PITTSBURGH – Pitt softball head coach Jenny Allard announced the addition of assistant coach Jordan Dail to the Panther’s staff, Monday morning. Dail comes to Pittsburgh after serving as a volunteer assistant coach under Donna J. Papa at North Carolina last season.
“I am thrilled to welcome Jordan to the coaching staff and to the Pitt Athletics family,” said Allard. “She will bring expertise to our pitching staff and will be an inspiration to the entire team.”
Prior to her time in Chapel Hill, Dail had a successful pitching career at Oregon from 2019-2022 after playing her freshman season at Virginia Tech in 2018. In four seasons with the Ducks, Dail pitched over 368 innings in 85 appearances, tallying 32 wins, 28 complete games, three saves, 354 strikeouts, with two NCAA Tournament appearances and finished her career ranked 11th all-time in program history for strikeouts.
As a sophomore, Dail was a Second Team All-PAC-12 selection, throwing two no-hitters and becoming just the fourth Duck ever to throw multiple seven-inning no-hitters in one season. During the season, she led the Pac-12 by more than 70.0 innings pitched and ranked second in the nation during the regular season with a total of 248 innings of work, with wins over #1 UCLA and #8 LSU, and earning multiple PAC-12 Pitcher of the Week honors.
Dail is currently playing professionally with the Texas Smoke of the Women’s Professional Fastpitch (WPF).
