LSU vs Georgia (5/20/23)

Georgia head baseball coach Scott Stricklin during the Bulldogs' game against Louisiana State University at Foley Field in Athens on May 20, 2023.

University of Georgia athletic director Josh Brooks announced a change in leadership of the UGA baseball program on Friday.

Georgia head coach Scott Stricklin just completed his 10th year as head baseball coach and had three years remaining on his current contract.

“I want to thank Scott for his service to our athletic department over the last 10 years,” said Brooks. “After much thought and deliberation, we feel it is in the best interest of our baseball program to move in a different direction. We will begin immediately the process of a national search to identify the next leader of our baseball team. We extend best wishes to Scott and his family, and a sincere thank you for their time at the University of Georgia.”

The 2023 team, whose season ended last Tuesday in the first round of the SEC baseball tournament, posted a 29-27 record and went 11-19 in SEC competition. Stricklin’s UGA teams posted an overall record of 299-236-1 and 121-146-1 in SEC games. His teams earned three NCAA tournament invitations: 2018 (39-21, 18-12 SEC, Regional finalist); 2019 (46-17, 21-9 SEC, Regional finalist); and 2022 (36-23, 15-15 SEC).
