Speak of the Devils

The premier podcast for Sun Devil football.

Jan 12, 2023

2022 was a special season for Sun Devil softball. Dynamic performances on the diamond helped key a run to a Super Regional. With so many key players set to return, the future seemed bright.

But a surprise coaching change kicked off a wave of key transfer portal departures, and quickly, the program found itself on shaky ground. ASU needed someone to stabilize the situation, to lay a foundation, and to begin the build back up. That's when ASU turned to Megan Bartlett.

A former All-American outfielder for Notre Dame, Bartlett has risen through the coaching ranks, including serving as head coach at Ball State and most recently, she was a key assistant on the Texas team that made a run to the championship finals of last year's Women's College World Series. Now, she's in the desert to oversee a Sun Devil resurgence.

On this episode, we discuss why she came to Tempe, the key lessons learned over her playing and coaching career, what makes Sun Devil softball special, the makeup of the 2023 squad, and so much more.
