Recommended Posts

By the way he earned it...


Yessir!  Augie will go down as the greatest baseball coach in college history ... at least for a while.  I am not much of a a baseball fan, but I have to say that this will be fun to watch go down.

AUSTIN -- Texas Baseball head coach Augie Garrido has been given a two-year contract extension, pending approval of The University of Texas System Board of Regents, Men's Athletics Director Steve Patterson announced Tuesday.


The extension keeps Garrido, who has guided Texas to a national-best eight appearances in the College World Series since 2000, including the 2002 and 2005 National Championships, under contract through the 2017 season.


"We're pleased with the great postseason run the team had this year," Patterson said. "We're excited to have Augie around for another three years to try and win more National Championships."


In 2014, Garrido guided Texas to a 46-21 record, finishing tied for third nationally after falling one win shy of the CWS championship. The Longhorns' postseason run included winning the Houston Regional and the Austin Super Regional before going 3-2 in Omaha, where they were eliminated by eventual champion Vanderbilt.


Garrido, the winningest coach in college baseball history with 1,920 career victories, has a 769-368-2 (.675) record in 18 seasons at Texas. Since taking over the Longhorns program prior to the 1997 season, he has led Texas to 14 NCAA Tournaments including nine Regional and eight Super Regional titles.


"We as coaches and our support staff are all excited to have the opportunity to continue to help develop the baseball and life skills of the current players and incoming recruits at The University of Texas," Garrido said.
