College of Coastal Georgia Athletic Director Dr. William “Bee” Carlton recently announced the hiring of alumna Jennifer Alfirov as the women’s softball head coach.
Alfirov, a 2002 graduate of CCG, previously coached at Long County High School.
“Coach Alfirov will be an outstanding leader for our softball program,” Carlton said. “She will bring a new level of energy and enthusiasm to our softball team. As a Coastal Georgia alumna, she understands the campus, the history of our softball program and has many connections to the community. Her softball playing experience here and at Armstrong Atlantic and her experience as head softball coach at Long County High School gives her the tools to effectively teach and coach our squad. She will be an outstanding recruiter who has many connections to coaches locally and throughout the state. We are thrilled to add her talent and experience to our staff.”
Prior to joining the Coastal Georgia athletic staff, Alfirov served as head varsity coach for three years and assistant varsity coach for one year in Ludowici. While coaching at Long County, she also taught middle-school math.
She also was a physical-education teacher, varsity assistant coach and junior varsity head coach at Camden County High School in 2006-07.
Alfirov earned her bachelor’s degree in physical education from Armstrong Atlantic State University.
“I couldn’t be happier. “To be able to coach in college is a dream come true for me,” Alfirov said. “The fact that I played softball here myself makes this even more exciting. I am looking forward to an exciting year.”
Alfirov played four years of varsity softball while attending Coastal Georgia and Armstrong Atlantic. She was a two-time high school state champion at Oconee County High School and played five years of travel ball with the Cobb County Bullets of Atlanta.
