Sue Enquist, Bruin Legend Set to Retire

A Bruin legend is set to retire:

The other Wizard of Westwood is leaving. UCLA softball coach Sue Enquist, winner of an NCAA-record 11 national titles as a player or coach, will retire from coaching on Jan.1.

Enquist, 49, has been the face of UCLA softball for more than 31 years.

She was the program's first All-American player, softball's first inductee into the UCLA Hall of Fame and only the second coach of the most storied program in collegiate softball.

She retires with the highest winning percentage of any current or former Division I head coach (.835). Her only peer is Arizona and U.S. National team head coach Mike Candrea, who has a .834 career winning percentage.

Longtime assistant coach Kelly Inouye-Perez will be her successor.

Enquist said made the decision to retire this summer. She acknowledged that the timing of the move has stunned many in the UCLA community, but she said she wanted to leave the program while she "was still in love with all of it."

Lets wish Coach Enquist best of luck. Sure hope the new  coach Kelly Inouye-Perez can continue the legacy Enquist is leaving behind.

GO BRUINS.
