Jadyn Spencer Family talks about Alabama coach's change of heart

Posted:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

A couple of decisions made last week by one of the top college softball coaches in the country caused a roller coaster of emotions in one Waterloo household.

Pat Murphy, a Waterloo native, announced last week that he was leaving the powerhouse Alabama program for LSU.

This obviously shook up Waterloo West star and Alabama recruit Jadyn Spencer.

The Iowa Gatorade player of the year Spencer was much relieved when Murphy had a change of heart and decided to stay at Alabama.

Jadyn's father Marvin Spencer says Murphy kept the family informed throughout the roller coaster ride.
