Arkansas softball coach resigns

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Jamie Pinkerton has resigned as Arkansas softball coach.

Pinkerton went 130-179 in his five seasons with the Razorbacks. Arkansas went 27-29 this season and advanced to the NCAA tournament for the second straight year.

"At this point in my career, I feel it is time to pursue other opportunities," Pinkerton said. "I wish Arkansas softball well in the future and will always consider it an honor to have been a part of the Razorback program."
