Bridgewater, NJ – March 14, 2013 – Owner/GM, Michael Neuwirth announced today that Rutgers softball coach Jay Nelson has been named head coach of the NY/NJ Comets.

“Jay’s extensive coaching background and passion for the sport makes him the ideal coach for our inaugural season,” stated Neuwirth. “I have followed Rutgers softball over the years and Jay’s connection with his players and fans was apparent.”

Under his leadership, the Rutgers softball program experienced a turnaround with back to back Big East tournament berths in 2010 and 2011.
