Former Texas Baseball Coach Augie Garrido Reportedly Hospitalized

Recommended Posts

On Sunday evening D1Baseball’s Kendall Rogers reported that former Texas baseball coach Augie Garrido was hospitalized on Saturday night as a result of what Rogers says is “a serious medical condition.”

Garrido, a coaching icon, spent 20 seasons at Texas and won two national championships with the Longhorns (2002, 2005).  He stepped down as head coach in 2016 after finishing the season with a 25-32 record.

He is the winningest coach in college baseball history, amassing 1,975 wins over the span of nearly 5 decades.

Garrido, along with former LSU head coach Skip Bertman, threw ceremonial first pitches at the LSU – Texas baseball series in Baton Rouge on February 23rd.

Since relinquishing his head coaching duties in 2016, Garrido has served as special assistant to athletics director.

The university has not provided a statement on the report.

    • True but you still have Vacarro Boston and at least one other guy who can play stop gap. . . .REALLY hope to see Da Boys take a S in the Top 3 rounds.   Of course I am now REALLY hoping Indy comes after Irving and Dallas adds a high pick in the 2nd.   Of course then I hope they trade back a bit and add another 2nd or 3rd. My logic is, if none of their 1st round players on their board falls to 19, why not add more players from their 2nd tier talent pool.    
    • It's not necessarily that.  He isn't coaching the same game as he did at VCU and it makes ZERO sense.  We hired the "HAVOC" coach.  Even VCU threatened a trademark violation if we used that.   Year 1 he didn't press at all and the "excuse" was that he didn't have his type of player to do so.   Fast forward to year 3 (after the year 2 WORST record in UT history) and he still isn't running the offense or defense we hired him for. This alone should have him gone and what is confusing about it is that his lack of success should make him try the VCU type of ball.  Works for West Virginia so there should be no excuse. The lack of shooters also shows his half court "dribble until 5 seconds left then heave a shot" doesn't work wither so he should stress high tempo. All this tells me what I need to know.  He isn't a good coach.  He got lucky with a team that hit every shot one year.     He's a terrible coach.  ZERO X's and O's. Wasted every big man he had here wit ha lack of low post offense.   He can't be fired fast enough and we wont amount to anything as a program until he is.
