Cedar Rapids Washington High School softball coach Mark Shirley has accepted a new challenge. Shirley has been named the new head coach at Mount Mercy College. He says he sees a challenge in a program that needs to be built back up to a winning level. Shirley won’t be leaving Washington, though. Both schools have agreed to let Shirley coach both programs. He says he loves coaching high school athletes and didn’t want to pass it up.And the reason he can do both is Iowa’s summer softball season which will allow him to recruit out-of-state and not interfere with the high school season.Shirley also teaches at Washington but says he is not sure if he will continue in that role.
