Julie Meyer is in her third season as assistant coach with the Ole Miss softball team. She came to Oxford after serving as an assistant on head coach Windy Thees' Memphis staff in 2011. With the Rebels, Meyer works primarily with the infielders and catchers, while assisting with hitting and camps.

"I am very excited about Julie joining me at Ole Miss," said Thees upon Meyer's hiring. "She is an unbelievable infield coach. I am excited to see how she can help our defense in the infield and behind the plate. She is very organized, and I think her approach will also help our hitters at the plate."

Meyer has made an immediate impact with the Rebels' infield in each of her first two years. Despite its youth throughout the infield in 2013, including freshmen starting at each of the middle infield positions for the majority of the season, Ole Miss set a program record with a .979 fielding percentage, the fifth best nationally.

In 2013, Allison Brown made the transition from shortstop to third base, where she became the fourth Rebel in program history to be named All-Region, and committed just one error while making 69 putouts and 65 assists for a .993 fielding percentage.

At the plate, Brown broke the program record for doubles hit in a season, was two shy of tying the program record for RBI, and her .354 batting average is the sixth best in single season history at Ole Miss.

First baseman Londen Ladner's .996 fielding percentage in 2013 is tied for the sixth best in program history, and catcher Marina Parra, who led the SEC in runners caught stealing, had the fourth best stolen bases against percentage in program history.

In Meyer's first year as assistant coach, Brown broke the Ole Miss freshman RBI record held previously by All-American Lauren Grill, and earned SEC All-Freshman honors. As a team, Ole Miss committed 14 fewer errors, helping lead the Rebels to an eight-win improvement from the previous season.

In 2011 with the Tigers, Meyer tutored shortstop Heather Mott to first team All-Conference USA honors and helped first baseman Jessica Phillips set the Tiger single-season record with 15 home runs. Defensively, Meyer coached an infield that recorded 10 or fewer errors at every position and set a school record for the most runners caught stealing.

Meyer joined Thees in Memphis after one season as a volunteer assistant coach and one season as a student assistant coach after a four-year playing career at the University of California. As a volunteer assistant for the Bears, she helped develop the catchers and infielders with everyday drills. Under the tutelage of Cal pitching coach John Reeves, she also assisted in calling the games.

As a first baseman/catcher for the Bears from 2004-08, Meyer produced record numbers for the Cal softball program. She finished her playing career ranked fourth all-time in the program's history with 25 home runs. She provided the heroics in the 2008 NCAA Regional Championship game when she hit a walk-off ninth inning single that sent the Bears to the Super Regional. In 2005, the Bears advanced to the College World Series and Meyer was the starter at first base in every game.

Meyer graduated with a B.A. in sociology in 2010. She has worked at various California softball clinics and has volunteered with Special Olympics as an instructor. She was elected as the captain of the Bears in 2007-08 and served as the softball representative to the Student Athlete Advisory Committee. She was awarded the Donna Terry Scholarship for her outstanding team leadership in 2007.
