Bio: 
When Nebraska began its search for a head coach following the 1992 season, the program was in need of an enthusiastic, high-character individual who would return the Husker softball program to its perch among the sport’s elite. NU found that person in Revelle, a 2010 NFCA Hall of Fame inductee who returned to her alma mater in 1993.

The numbers speak for themselves: 843 victories; 19 All-Americans; 18 NCAA Tournament appearances; 13 Academic All-Americans; eight top-10 national finishes; eight coach-of-the-year accolades; seven conference titles; four Olympians; three 50-win seasons; and three Women’s College World Series berths.

Entering her 23rd season in 2015, Revelle owns nearly every Nebraska coaching record. She is the winningest and longest-serving head coach in Husker softball history and became Nebraska's all-time wins leader over any sport with her 768th win at Oklahoma State on March 3, 2013.

In 2014, the Huskers won an NCAA Regional title for the second straight year and posted a 44-18 record against one of the nation's toughest schedules. With a conference and regional title to its credit, Nebraska, under the guidance of the 2014 Big Ten Coach of the Year, finished in a tie for ninth at the NCAA Tournament as the Huskers recorded their second straight top-10 national finish and their eighth in the past 18 seasons. 

Revelle's Huskers won four games in less than 23 hours to win the NCAA Columbia (Mo.) Regional, becoming only the second team in NCAA history to lose its regional opener and then come back through the loser's bracket and twice defeat a national seed on its home field to win a regional title. The Huskers then gave No. 2 Alabama all it could handle in the Super Regional, as Nebraska dropped a pair of one-run games to the national runner-up, including a 12-inning loss in game one.

Revelle has also emerged as an outstanding leader for the sport of softball as a whole through three stints as the NFCA President (1999-2002, 2005-06, 2012-present), as the NFCA 2nd Vice President (1995-98) and as both a member (1989-92) and chair of the NFCA All-American Committee (1993-94).
