Aimee DeVos has been at the helm of the 49ers softball program since 1995. After serving as interim head coach for a year in 1994, she was appointed head coach the following season and now enters her 21st year in that role. Having devoted over two decades to Charlotte softball, DeVos has played an integral role in the advancement of the program and the development of her players.
Since moving to the Atlantic 10 in 2006, and then moving back into Conference USA in 2014, DeVos and the 49ers have enjoyed great success, compiling a .611 conference win percentage with a 96-61 record. During that time, 27 Charlotte players have garnered all-Atlantic 10 honors, while 13 have been selected all-state and eight have earned all-region recognition. DeVos has helped the squad go nearly 80 games over .500 at 234-158 in that span, recording Charlotte’s largest, third-largest and fourth-largest win totals.
Personally, DeVos has reached several career milestones while at Charlotte, most recently earning her 500th career win on March 8, 2014 as the Niners topped FIU 2-0 on the road. DeVos earned her 400th career win in a 4-2 topping of Elon on April 22, 2010. She is the first 49er head coach to surpass the 200, 300, 400 and 500 career-win marks.
Jen Consaul has joined the Charlotte softball coaching staff as an assistant coach and will primarily work with pitching.
“I feel like we have made a great addition to our coaching staff with the hiring of Jen Consaul,” DeVos said. “We’re anxious to have Jen continue to develop our pitching staff to the top of Conference USA. Jen has a first class work ethic and passion for pitching and I am confident that our players will benefit from her coaching on a daily basis.”
Consaul comes to Charlotte from Canisius College where she was a four-year letterwinner as a student-athlete and then served as the team’s pitching coach while assisting with day-to-day operations of the program under head coach Kim Griffin. In her first season as a coach, she helped the Golden Griffins to a 26-19 overall record including a 15-5 record in Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) play.
