Auburn's Woodard to be Inducted Into WNMU Hall of Fame

Auburn assistant coach Scott Woodard will be inducted into the Western New Mexico University Athletics Hall of Fame later this year, the school announced this week.

Woodard, who played at, graduated from, and coached at WNMU, spent twenty years at the school as a coach and administrator, at various times serving as head softball coach, head baseball coach, assistant football coach, and athletic director.

During Woodard's tenure as a Mustang, the school transitioned from the NAIA level to Division II, as well as restarted the softball program in 1998.

As a baseball player, Woodard earned all-star honors as a shortstop and was twice nominated to the all-conference team.

A longtime Clint Myers associate, Woodard served as an assistant at Arizona State under Myers, helping build the Sun Devils into the 2011 National championship-winning program. When Myers left ASU for Auburn, Woodard was the only "holdover" staff member to also make the move, and, ultimately, the only non-Myers on the coaching staff of the Tigers' new regime.

Woodard will be joined in induction by volleyball player Liz Narkon. The ceremony will be held September 23rd.
