After spending five seasons at the helm of the Rebels, Dodd moves to lead the Broncos in the West Coast Conference, bringing with her years of both playing and coaching experience on the west coast.
Dodd amassed 121 career wins at UNLV, her first head coaching position. Prior to accepting the job in Las Vegas, she served as an assistant at Oregon under Mike White, as well as single-year stints as an assistant at Nevada and a graduate assistant at UCLA.
During her career, Dodd has also spent time on the coaching staff of both the USA National Team and Junior Women’s National Team.
A UCLA alum, Dodd was three times named an all-region and all-conference honoree as a pitcher and first baseman. She tallied forty-one career wins and 223 strikeouts in the circle, and 176 hits and 129 RBIs at the plate during her career.
At Santa Clara, Dodd takes over a program that went 12-37 in 2017, including winning just four conference games. The Broncos finished fifth (of six teams) in the conference standings.
