Head Coach Bob Morgan Resigns
June 5, 2005
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Indiana University head baseball coach Bob Morgan has resigned from his position, IU Athletics Director Rick Greenspan announced today.
Morgan recently completed his 22nd season at the helm of the Hoosier program, and he closes his tenure with a 1,070-586-6 (.646) record. One of just 30 coaches in NCAA Division I baseball history with 1,000 career victories, Morgan entered the 2005 season ranked 11th among the nation's winningest active coaches, and he has sent more than 50 players on to the professional ranks.
Morgan said that his time in Bloomington has been both personally and professionally rewarding.
"I have enjoyed my 22 years at this institution and believe I have made a significant contribution," Morgan said. "I am indebted to my coaches, players and colleagues with whom I have had the benefit of working."
"We appreciate Bob's dedication and commitment to the Indiana baseball program," Greenspan said. "Bob approached his job with great vigor, and we thank him for his effort and wish Bob and his family the best in future endeavors."
Although Greenspan did not specify a timetable, he intends to work expeditiously to find the next Indiana baseball coach.
"I will work diligently to try and make this transition as smooth as possible," Greenspan said. "We will immediately begin a national search in order to find a coach with proven credentials in all facets of a successful program - on the field, in recruiting, compliance and academics."
