Adam Arbour will join the Iowa softball staff as an assistant coach, head coach Marla Looper announced Wednesday. Arbour will handle Iowa’s offense.

“Adam is a quality human being first and foremost,” Looper said. “That is something I look for, not only in our student-athletes, but also in our staff, because ultimately, we are in the people business. Second, he has a lot of energy and passion for the sport of softball ."

Arbour most recently spent his time as a volunteer assistant coach at Alabama for four seasons.

Alabama won the NCAA national championship in 2012 and was runner-up in the Women’s College World Series this past season.

Before he was in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, Arbour was a student manager at Michigan and a member of the Michigan baseball team.

“Working with [Looper] and [assistant coach] Adrianna Baggetta and returning to the Big Ten ultimately attracted me to the University of Iowa,” Arbour said. “We have a great opportunity to compete for championships in the future, and I am excited to build upon the foundation they have created. I can't wait to get to campus, meet the team, and engage with the staff.
