JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Nov. 15, 2022) – Earlier today, ETSU ended its relationship with Belinda Hendrix, who served as head coach of the university’s softball program for one season.
Effective immediately, ETSU has parted ways with Hendrix for cause following numerous complaints from student-athletes, parents, and community members who cited an unhealthy team culture.
“The mental health and overall well-being of our student-athletes is our top priority as an athletics program,” Dr. Richard Sander, Interim Director of Intercollegiate Athletics said. “We have been working with Ms. Hendrix for some time in an effort to improve the situation. Unfortunately, we have not seen the results we expect.”
A search for a new head coach will begin immediately.
