Southern Conference Coach of the Year

  • 2004
  • 2008
  • 2009
  • 2010
  • 2011

Frank Reed wraps up his 13th season as the head coach of the Mocs, claiming his seventh Southern Conference Championship.  With the conclusion of the 2014 season, Reed has guided UTC to seven regular season titles, seven conference tournament crowns and seven NCAA Regional appearances. Reed has coached in the Scenic City for 24 years, including 11 seasons at Chattanooga State. Over his 24-year career, the head coach has compiled a 974-386 record considering collegiate and junior college records. Reed is just two wins away from reaching 500 with the Mocs, boasting a 498-299 record at UTC.

Reed picked up his 400th win at Chattanooga to kick off the 2012 season, taking down Bethune-Cookman in a 12-1 routing at the Dot Richardson National Collegiate Invitational in Clermont, Fla. Reed later earned his 900th career win with a 4-1 victory over Southern Conference foe Western Carolina April 14.

2011 was a banner year in many ways for the program as Chattanooga relied heavily on six seniors bringing the Lady Mocs to the final of the NCAA Tuscaloosa Regional for the first time in history as the Tiffany Baker, the all-time SoCon leader in homers, blasted three on elimination Saturday. The Lady Mocs paced the nation in batting average at .351 entering the postseason, while breaking eight team and five single-season marks. Chattanooga posted a 44-14 mark overall, highest winning pct. in history, along with a SoCon record 20 victories. Michelle Fuzzard was named the SoCon Player of the Year as the team captured its 12th regular season title, while Sara Poteat took SoCon Tournament Most Outstanding Player helping the Lady Mocs roll off four-straight wins for its 11th championship. Individually, five student-athletes were selected to NFCA All-South Region teams, a team first, along with six making appearances on all-conference teams. Reed additionally captured his fourth-straight and fifth overall SoCon Coach of the Year honor.

The 2010 campaign saw Chattanooga enter the SoCon slate with a 13-7 mark before capturing 18 of its next 20 contests including sweeping its first four league opponents. UTC would go on to clinch its fourth-straight and 12th overall regular season title and the No. 1 seed. Chattanooga's season would end early on the first day of the event. Reed was selected as the SoCon Coach of the Year, while five Lady Mocs were named to All-SoCon teams including three to the first team.

The Lady Mocs entered the SoCon schedule in 2009 under .500 after a challenging non-conference slate. The squad then dominated conference action claiming a 15-5 record and clinching its 11th regular season title and the No. 1 seed in the SoCon tournament. Chattanooga hosted and swept the SoCon Tournament for the 10th time, advancing to its seventh NCAA Regional appearance. At the Tuscaloosa Regional, Brooke Loudermilk pitched a gem against Texas, but the Longhorns rallied in the bottom of the ninth for a 1-0 victory. Seven players were selected to All-SoCon teams, while Reed also was honored as SoCon Coach of the Year.

During the 2008 season, the Lady Mocs finished with a 41-22 record, 13-5 SoCon mark, regular season SoCon title and SoCon Tournament championship. UTC advanced to its fifth appearance in the NCAA Regional Tournament. Reed was also honored with his second SoCon Coach of the Year award.

UTC posted a stellar 16-5 mark in conference play in 2007 to claim its first regular season crown since 2004 and completed the regular season with a mark of 35-29. The season would come to end during the SoCon Tournament.

During the 2005 and 2006 seasons, Chattanooga won 84 games. The team fell in the SoCon Tournament Championship game in 2005 after finishing with a 46-21 record.

Reed brought the Lady Mocs a program-record five trips to the NCAA Championships in 2004. Chattanooga posted a 16-4 mark in league play to capture their eighth SoCon regular season title and laid claim to the eighth SouCon Tournament Championship in team history with four straight victories at Jim Frost Stadium. The title was Chattanooga's fifth straight and was the sixth time that the team had surpassed 40 victories, finishing with a mark of 45-25.
Following a NCAA Tournament appearance in 2003, The Lady Mocs opened the 2002 season with back-to-back no-hitters and knocked off top-25 teams in Ohio State and Baylor, all while never dropping no more than two games in a row. The Lady Mocs garnered national recognition that season as they posted two upset wins over top-seeded No. 12 Florida Atlantic in the NCAA Regionals. UTC then just missed capturing a berth in the Women's College World Series as narrow losses to Georgia Tech and Florida State closed out the season at 44-15.

Having compiled an incredible record of 476 wins and 87 losses in 10 seasons at Chattanooga State, Reed was introduced as Chattanooga's third head coach in the program's history on August 1, 2001. He picked up right where former coaches Ralph and Karen Weekley had left off and immediately pushed Chattanooga softball to a level it had never seen before.

Reed's final year at CSTCC was perhaps the most spectacular. In 2001, the Lady Tigers posted a 62-3 record, attaining a ranking of No. 2 in the nation and finishing fourth in the 2001 national tournament. That performance marked the seventh consecutive tournament appearance in Chattanooga State history, all of which came under Reed's tenure. As a result of that season, Reed was named National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) National Junior College Coach of the Year in 2001. The Lady Tigers also placed fourth in the 1995 championships and finished fifth in 1999 and 2000. The team's .954 winning percentage remains in the record books as the highest in NJCAA Division I history.

Those lofty accomplishments came after Reed first established the women's softball program at CSTCC in 1990. In addition to serving as the only head coach in program history, he was also responsible for all aspects of the program, from maintaining budgets and handling purchases to recruiting and field maintenance. Reed directed the design and completion of a the women's softball complex on the CSTCC campus.

Under Reed's guidance, the Lady Tigers won eight conference and state championships as well as seven regional championships. They were ranked nationally in the top-10 for eight years rising as high as No. 2 in 1995 and 2001. This success led to Reed being selected as Conference Coach of the Year seven times in his last eight seasons.

Reed also organized the Eagles Softball Association, which featured youth travel teams in all age groups, and guided the Parker Eagles summer league team to a tremendous nine-year record of 458 wins and 77 losses. During his time, the Eagles were regularly ranked among the top-10 Amateur Softball Association (ASA) teams nationally and were ASA National Champions in 1990 and National Softball Association (NSA) Champions seven times. In 1998, Reed was inducted into the NSA Hall of Fame.

In addition to his work with teams in Chattanooga, Reed has also served as the hitting instructor of the Dominican Republic's national team for four years. He became the head coach for the team in 2006 and his team spent time in the United States playing several professional softball teams in preparation of the 2006 Central American and Caribbean Sports Games in Colombia. While in the Dominican Republic, Reed also ran camps in Santo Domingo for children in the area.

A life-long resident of Chattanooga and graduate of Central High School, Reed has spent more than 30 years as a City of Chattanooga employee. He most recently served as Senior Acquisition Agent for the city and was also supervisor of the Acquisition Division for major sewer, road and rights-of-way for major public works projects. Additionally, Reed has directed the review of land appraisals and coordinated settlement disputes with attorneys and property owners and managed the disposal of surplus land for city agencies.

Reed attended Chattanooga State and earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Appraisal Technology from Western States University. He also holds a Masters degree in Business Administration from Western States.

Reed and his wife, Denise, reside in Chattanooga and have two daughters, Amy Highfield and Dana Reed Mull (who is the head softball coach of Gordon Lee High School) and four grandchildren - Logan (15), Seth (12), Riley (3) and Reed (born Sept. 13).
