Thank you, Good-bye and Good Luck Coach Tracie Adix-Zins

Even though I saw it coming, I am sad to see DePaul Softball Head Coach Tracie Adix-Zins was let go by DePaul. The announcement was made last week.

Coach Adix-Zins went 125-133 (.484) in six seasons at DePaul. The Blue Demons finished the 2023-24 season with a 9-38 record. Although those numbers aren't horrible, the trend was not good and the change was not a surprise.

Coach Adix-Zins was a class act, first as a player at DePaul and also for the Chicago Bandits, then as a coach. She had a few stints as assistant coach at other schools, before getting the DePaul position.

I really enjoyed Coach Aix-Zins during her stay at DePaul. She was always good for an interview or quote. She always had time for me when I needed something. Even during the rough last couple seasons, she never shied away from the press or fans. Unfortunately, the results just weren't there the last two seasons. That's the life of a coach. Still, I hate to see her go.

I am sure she will land elsewhere. I hope it is somewhere in the area. Either way, I will follow her career. I also wish her luck and thank her for her time and consideration over the years.
