Megan Griffith was named an assistant coach for the UC San Diego softball program in September 2017.
During the 2018-19 season, Griffith helped the Tritons to their first West Region title and NCAA Championship appearance since 2012. UC San Diego claimed the title in dramatic fashion, with a walk-off win over top-seeded Concordia Irvine during the NCAA West Super Regional in Irvine.
It was also a thrilling road to the Super Regional, as UC San Diego overcame the losers bracket while hosting the NCAA West Sub-Regional. The Tritons beat conference rival Chico State twice on the final day to advance to the Super Regional.
That same season, Griffith assisted the Tritons to their first California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) regular-season crown since 2011. Griffith and the staff were ultimately named the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) West Region Coaching Staff of the Year for their efforts throughout 2018-19.
In 2017-18, Griffith aided UC San Diego to its 10th NCAA Division II postseason appearance. The Tritons competed in the NCAA West Sub-Regional.
Griffith came to the Tritons after previously serving as assistant coach at Whittier College, and was formerly head coach of the Lakewood Firecrackers.
An infielder, Griffith played her final two collegiate seasons at Middle Tennessee State University. There, she earned NFCA All-America Scholar-Athlete honors, and was also named to the Dean's List. Griffith played her first college season at McNeese State before playing one season at Gulf Coast State College.
A native of Erwin, Tenn., Griffith attended Science Hill High School.
