Kevin Shelton took over the management of the Texas Glory Gold in August of 2007 and has led the program to new heights. In 2014, Shelton and his staff were selected the NFCA's National Travel Ball Coaching Staff of the Year. In addition, Shelton was reelected to the position of the Travel Ball representative on the NFCA Board of Directors. In January 2015, Shelton was named the first general manager of the National Pro Fastpitch's expansion team Dallas Charge, which will begin play in 2015.

Regarded as a groundbreaking summer from an 18U South Central Region perspective, the Glory finished fifth (highest in their region) in the U.S. Club Rankings. Working with 21 future Division I student-athletes, the staff guided their squad to several top 6 finishes, highlighted by winning the 18 Power Pool of the Colorado Fireworks Super 64. The win in Aurora was the first for a team out of Texas in several years and also snapped the Firecrackers (Calif.) six-year winning streak.

The season also included a first-place showing at the 2013 Ronald McDonald top bracket, third at the exclusive SoCal Invitational and sixth at the TC/USA Nationals. In addition, the Glory finished the season fourth in total on-field points as recorded by USA Softball rankings.

Shelton started coaching as an assistant with the Black Sox from 1997 through May of 2000.

Prior to that he served as a Commissioner in the United States Navy and spent an additional eight years, one month, 14 days in the submarine force. While in the Navy, he earned his master’s in information systems.

After leaving the Navy in 1995, he worked for Procter and Gamble and Frito Lay in their marketing departments.

He attended Clearlake High School in Houston, Texas where he played football and ran track, finishing in the top 10 percent in his graduating class. He also graduated from Texas A&M University where he studied nuclear engineering.
