The latest Seattle talent to be picked up by the Internet big leagues is Huskies Softball Coach Teresa Wilson. Wilson has signed an exclusive deal with California-based TheSportsCoach.com to become an expert content provider to its amateur-sports Web site.
TheSportsCoach.com offers a unique program providing exclusive sports training and educational content from professional athletes and coaches, combined with a fundraising service for youth leagues and high schools.
“TheSportsCoach.com is a great forum for those of us who have lived our lives in the world of sports to pass on the knowledge we have attained to young athletes,” says Wilson. “I’m looking forward to working with TheSportsCoach.com to make a contribution to tomorrow’s players.”
As part of the agreement with TheSportsCoach.com, Wilson will contribute exclusive articles, essays and training presentations to the site, and will regularly host chat sessions at TheSportsCoach.com to speak directly with amateur players and coaches.
Wilson will be joining a pretty impressive team of other coaches such as 2000 NCAA champion Oklahoma Sooners softball head coach Patty Gasso, UCLA head coach Sue Enquist and San Diego Padres star Tony Gwynn.
Wilson’s softball career has included successful stints as both player and coach. As a pitcher for the University of Missouri, Wilson set numerous records and became an All-American. As a coach, she has built successful teams at Minnesota and Oregon — where she was named NCAA Coach of the Year.
In her seven years at the helm of the University of Washington softball program, Wilson has led the Huskies to an incredible .719 winning percentage, six straight berths in the NCAA tournament and a No. 1 ranking in the USA Today/NSCA poll. Go Huskies!
