Weber State hired one of its own to lead the softball program, Salt Lake Community College softball coach Mary Kay Amicone.
Amicone, a four-time coach of the year at SLCC, led the Bruins to three consecutive NJCAA championship games, including 2013. Amicone was 433-99-2 in nine seasons at SLCC, 330-57 in conference games.
Amicone, who also coached at Utah and led BYU to a Mountain West Conference championship, replaces Tina Johnson, who restarted the program four years ago following a 27-year absence. The Wildcats were 10-38 in 2013.
