AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Texas softball coach Connie Clark has resigned after 22 seasons and 873 wins with the Longhorns.

Texas announced the move Wednesday. The Longhorns had recently been eliminated from the NCAA Tournament and finished the season 33-26.

She was a three-time Big 12 coach of the year and had 19 30-win seasons (873-401-3 overall).
