Described as the “Will Rogers of softball,” because of his unique way of sharing his insights, Scott Whitlock is recognized as one of the sport’s finest coaches. His illustrious, 28-year career began in 1985, when Kennesaw State University hired him as assistant women’s basketball coach and assistant slowpitch softball coach. In 1986, he took over as head softball coach and was instrumental in building one of the greatest college softball programs in the country. Whitlock was the driving force behind the program’s successful transition from slowpitch at the NAIA level to fastpitch at the NAIA, NCAA Division II, and Division I levels.

Competing at the D-II level, Whitlock guided his teams to back-to-back national championships in 1995 and 1996. His 1999 and 2000 seasons marked one of the best two-year runs in softball history when his Owls combined for 108 wins against only 15 loses—a winning percentage of .878. For 12 consecutive years (1991-2002), Whitlock led KSU to a final top 10 national ranking. In his 21 seasons coaching fastpitch, Whitlock compiled an overall fastpitch record of 997-296 (.771), placing him near the top in most NCAA softball coaching categories. Additionally, he won 13 regional crowns and coached 51 All-Americans. Combined with his years as a slowpitch coach (153-15, .910), Whitlock finished with an overall record of 1,150-311 for a winning percentage of .787.

In 2005, Whitlock was inducted into the National Fastpitch Coaches Hall of Fame. He was also inducted into the Georgia Dugout Club Hall of Fame in 2010.

At the conclusion of the 2013 season, Whitlock retired as one of the all-time winningest and most respected coaches in NCAA softball. He remained on staff at KSU as its senior associate athletics director. In his current role, he works on the management of capital projects, as well as serving as the program administrator for men’s golf, softball, women’s golf, and volleyball.

His quick humor and affable personality are found at softball clinics throughout the country. His expertise in the field is sought out by his peers, aspiring coaches, and coaching professionals not only from the United States, but from around the globe.

Whitlock is an avid golfer, an aspiring fisherman, and a fan of college football and NASCAR. He is also a classic country music aficionado and admirer of Hank Williams Sr.

Whitlock’s wife, Susan, is a member of KSU’s faculty. The couple have two children, daughter, Lacey Bass (along with son-in-law Blayne) and son, Blake, one granddaughter, Blair, 4, and a baby grandson, Wyatt, who arrived in 2019.
