GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - Former Valparaiso coach Jordan Stevens has been named head softball coach at the University of North Dakota.

Stevens took a leave of absence from Valparaiso in May, citing personal reasons, and did not return. UND Athletic Director Brian Faison announced his hiring on Monday.

Stevens spent four seasons at Valparaiso, guiding the Crusaders to NCAA tournament appearances in 2012 and 2013. His teams won 57 percent of their games.

At UND, Stevens succeeds Eric Oakley, who resigned last spring after his third season.
