(BLOOMFIELD) - After five seasons as the head softball coach at Bloomfield High School, Nicole Fougerousse is moving on to the college coaching ranks.

Coach Fougerousse recently accepted a position as assistant softball coach at Tennessee State University in Nashville, Tennessee.

Fougerousse became aware of the Tennessee State opportunity through a connection she had made during her days of coaching the Clovers youth softball organization some ten years ago. Current Tennessee State head softball coach Tom Opdenbrow was umpiring at a tournament the Clovers were playing in and the two became acquainted.

This year during spring break, Nicole decided to take a trip to Tennessee to watch Opdenbrow's Lady Tigers play at Murray State. He told her he had a position open for an assistant coach. Her duties will include working with pitchers and coaching first base, along with meeting, ordering equipment and uniforms, filling out paperwork, computer and administrative tasks.

Tennessee State University sponsors seven men's and eight women's teams in NCAA sanctioned sports and is a member of the Ohio Valley Conference.
