Chad Kerr, who had been Central Christian College's athletic director and softball coach, has been announced as the new head softball coach at NCAA Division II school Alderson Broaddus University in Philippi, W. Va.
The school made the announcement on Wednesday.
Kerr has spent the past three seasons at Central as softball coach and he later became the athletic director. The Lady Tigers upgraded their talent level, not to mention their victory total, steadily during his time.
Prior to Central, he coached competitive select/travel softball both at the 16U and 18U level with the D-Bat Mustang Organization.
Kerr played baseball at Northeast Missouri State University, now Truman State, where he was an All-Conference outfielder and is on the career and single-season stolen base record lists. He graduated with a bachelor of science in English.
Kerr's oldest daughter, Kiley, just completed her senior year at McPherson High. She was having an outstanding softball season when she suffered a knee injury eight games in and missed the rest of the year. Another daughter, Chelsey, was one of the best players in the state as a sophomore and figures to be strongly recruited once she completes her prep career.
