Champion-Level Standards with Deanna Gumpf - University of Notre Dame Head Softball Coach

In this conversation with ReliaQuest Mental Performance coaches Dr. Nicole Detling and Derin McMains, University of Notre Dame Head Softball Coach Deanna Gumpf discusses:

  • Establishing a team’s identity
  • Bringing your culture’s core values to life
  • Accountability and having hard conversations

Coach Deanna Gumpf is one of the most decorated coaches in the history of Notre Dame athletics. Entering her 23rd season as leader of the program, she continues to ascend the ladder as one of the nation’s premier head coaches.

Under her guidance the Irish have qualified for the NCAA Regionals post-season tournament every season she’s been at the helm, a streak of 24-consecutive seasons. Her 855 total career wins ranks her first for most wins all-time as a head coach at the University of Notre Dame.

Her accomplishments away from the field are equally as impressive. Each year the university awards a varsity athletics team that exhibits excellence in community service the Notre Dame Trophy Award. Her softball team has won that award in 7 of the last 8 years – thanks primarily to the success of the program’s Strikeout Cancer initiative.
