SEATTLE (AP) — Washington has found a new baseball coach, hiring Indiana State’s Lindsay Meggs on Sunday to take over the Huskies program.
Meggs’ hiring was confirmed by the school and he will be introduced at a news conference Monday.
Meggs takes over for Ken Knutson, who was fired in June after 17 seasons at Washington. The Huskies finished each of the last five years in the bottom half of the Pac-10 standings. Washington went 25-30 overall and 13-14 in the Pac-10 this past season.
Meggs comes to Washington after spending three years at Indiana State. He was 77-79 in his time with the Sycamores, but helped turn around the Indiana State program. This past season the Sycamores went 33-21 and Meggs was named the Missouri Valley Conference coach of the year, as the Sycamores finished second in the MVC during the regular season.
