Tammy Lohmann Was Named San Jose State Softball Head Coach

In September, Tammy Lohmann was named the sixth head coach of the San Jose State University Softball program.

Lohmann is replacing longtime head coach and the winningest head coach in Spartan program history, Peter Turner, after his contract was not renewed.

Tammy Lohmann played softball at Arizona State University from 1993-97. She then began her coaching career at Bradley University in 1999 where she stayed until the conclusion of the 2002 season.

She then moved to University if Wisconsin, where she was on the Badgers staff from 2003-05.

Lohmann then joined the UC Berkeley staff in 2006 where she stayed on the staff as an assistant until this past year.

In March 2020, Cal head coach Diane Ninemire stepped down and Lohmann was named the interim head coach for the final five games. Cal won the first three games before losing the next two before sports were forced to shutdown due to COVID-19.

So Lohmann brings a 3-2 (.600) career head coaching record to San Jose State.

Today, Lohmann hired Leticia Olivarez as an assistant coach and to coach the pitching staff.

Olivarez was an assistant coach at SJSU in 2017 and 2018 before she left for Texas Tech for the 2019 and 2020 seasons.

Olivarez played collegiately for the Wisconsin Badgers where she was an All-Big Ten performer her senior year. She then spent the 2011 season as a graduate assistant coach with the Badgers before moving to the South Bay.
