Schults spent this past season as a Grad -Asst Coach on the Sooners as they won the National Championship. Shults won a National title as a player with the Sooners in 2013.
Shults is the second high profile name that Vesely hired to her staff as she hired former All-American pitcher Megan Gibson-Loftin to be her pitching coach. Sources told me that Shults was highly recommended by Sooners Head Coach Patti Gaso who Vesely played for at Oklahoma.
You can listen to Shults interview with In The Circle from May 31st where she discussed many topics including her coaching desires right here.
