MEET THE COACHES

 

PATTY GASSO | HEAD COACH

Having recently completed her 24th season at the University of Oklahoma, NFCA Hall of Fame head coach Patty Gasso has molded the OU softball program into a national power and permanently placed herself among the elite college softball coaches in the country.

Oklahoma has won four national championships, winning in 2000, 2013, 2016 and most recently in 2017. OU is one of just three programs in NCAA history to win more than two national titles. She's reached the Women's College World Series 12 times during her tenure, and in the process, advanced to the postseason in each one of her 24 seasons.

JENNIFER ROCHA | ASSOCIATE HEAD COACH

Jennifer Rocha was hired as the program’s associate head coach and pitching coach on July 18, 2018, and will begin her first season with OU in 2019. Once a student-athlete (1996-98) and graduate assistant (1999-2001) for the Sooners, the former Jennifer Jaime returns to Oklahoma after most recently spending 13 years at Florida.

“I am humbled by the invitation to return to my alma mater and join the accomplished program at the University of Oklahoma,” Rocha said. “I’m excited about being a part of the culture of excellence built by Joe Castiglione and contributing to the championship tradition developed and sustained by Coach (Patty) Gasso and Coach JT Gasso.”

JT GASSO | ASSISTANT COACH

JT Gasso has spent the past three seasons as Oklahoma's assistant coach. His primary responsibilities are focused on working with OU's outfielders and the Sooner offense.

His first two seasons in Norman couldn't have gone any better as the Sooners won both the 2016 and 2017 national championships. He and the OU staff were named the NFCA National Coaching Staff of the Year for their efforts in 2016 and 2017.
