Jennifer Bridges begins her fourth season on the USD coaching staff and third as the top assistant. As the Toreros 1st assistant, her responsibilities include working closely with the pitching staff and catchers, while she also contributes to hitters & infield.

As the Torero pitching and catching coach, Bridges coached pitcher Gina McFarland and catcher Sara Mason to PCSC All Conference 2nd Team honors in 2006.

While also coaching Torero infielders, Bridges has coached 7 infielders to PCSC All Conference honors over the past four seasons. Most recently in 2006, two infielders earned PCSC 1st Team All-Conference honors, Kathleen Bonja (third base) and Marissa Merchain (first base).

The Toreros offensive production has also steadily improved since Bridges joined the staff. She played an integral role leading the 2006 squad to the program's highest batting averaging in USD history since 1998 (.296 average). USD improved in virtually every offensive category from 2005 to 2006, including batting average, runs, hits, doubles, triples, homeruns, RBI, total bases, slugging percentage, walks and on base percentage. Bridges also contributes and is vital to the success of other aspects of the team such as recruiting, scheduling, fundraising and alumni relations. She is also the Camps Coordinator for USD and has assisted in a number of other summer camps, including the University of Texas.

A 2001 USD graduate, Bridges played catcher, third base and first base for the Torero softball program. From 1999-2001, Bridges led the Toreros to 97 victories in her stellar career. Including USD's record season of 44 wins in 1999. Bridges earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology, along with a minor in Business Administration. She then went on to earn her Master of Science degree in Physical Education from Azusa Pacific University in 2003.

Her previous coaching experience includes assisting the softball programs at the University of San Diego High School and Whittier College. She attended St. Joseph's High School and is from Downey, California in the Los Angeles County area.
