Position: Assistant Coach • Third Season
Courtney Breault is in her second season as Assistant Coach for Clemson Softball. Breault works primarily with the Tigers’ infielders and offense, and will also serve as recruiting coordinator and coordinator of camps and clinics. Clemson Head Coach John Rittman announced the hiring of Breault on July 10, 2018.
Breault helped transcend Clemson Softball into a nationally-respected program in its inaugural season. Breault helped guide Clemson, which was predicted to finish in 10th in the conference, according to the 2020 ACC preseason poll, to a 19-8 overall record, including 5-1 in ACC play. The Tigers, who won both of their ACC series against Virginia and Pitt, won 11 of their final 12 games before the 2020 season was cut short due to the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19). On March 3, the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) announced the first-year program received votes (10) in the fifth edition of the 2020 USA Today/NFCA D1 Top 25 Coaches Poll. The announcement came after Clemson defeated then-No. 14 Georgia, 4-1, on Feb. 26 at Clemson Softball Stadium before sweeping the Cavaliers to win its first-ever ACC series.
Before arriving to Clemson, Breault served as an assistant coach under Jamieson at Furman from 2014-17, during which time the Paladins achieved three-straight 30-win seasons from 2015-17, and claimed a share of the SoCon Championship in 2017. In her three seasons, Paladin players were named SoCon Player of the Year (2015), Pitcher of the Year (2017) and Freshman of the Year (2017), while earning numerous all-conference accolades. Breault also helped coach Furman’s single-season home run record holder (2016) and the school’s career home run record holder (2015-17).
In addition to coaching, Breault was responsible for the Furman program’s budget, travel, scheduling and equipment. She also assisted with scholarship allocation and coordinated all multi-team tournaments hosted by the Paladins.
The native of Roseville, California played for Nebraska in 2012 and 2013, where she was a two-time All-Big Ten Second-Team selection and a three-time member of the Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll. As a senior in 2013, Breault led the Cornhuskers to a berth in the Women’s College World Series, the program’s first WCWS appearance in 10 years.
Breault began her collegiate softball career at Arkansas, where she played two seasons for the Razorbacks in 2010 and 2011, during which time Jamieson served as an assistant coach. She was named to the SEC All-Freshman Team in 2010 and was a two-time SEC Academic Honor Roll selection.
Breault graduated from Nebraska in 2013 with a degree in Business Management.
