When most Nebraskans think of great coaches, they think Bob Devaney or Tom Osborne or John Cook. But there's certifiable evidence that Rhonda Revelle should be in that conversation. When it comes to her dedication and her hall of fame career, Rhonda is definitely one of the best Cornhusker coaches in the history of the school. She says, "It's been a dream to coach at my alma mater."
Coach Revelle says her life's mission is to have a positive influence on young people, "I really don't want to coach anywhere else."
This Eugene, Oregon native began her playing career at the University of Oregon, but transferred to Nebraska and played in Lincoln from 1981 to 1983, "I'm still here, it was the best move of my life."
Rhonda was a key member of the schools first Women's College World Series team and Rhonda got the offer to come home and lead her alma mater in 1992. Rhonda says, "I still can't believe it's been 26 years, I can't believe I'm 56 years old, it's like I look in the mirror and go, "I don't feel 56 years old.'"
Over the past quarter century, Coach Revelle has led her huskers to more than 960 victories, that makes her the all-time winningest coach in the history of Nebraska athletics.
