ATHENS, Ga. — Georgia head baseball coach Scott Stricklin is out after 10 seasons of leading the Dogs.

University of Georgia Director of Athletics Josh Brooks made the announcement on Friday.

Stricklin 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,” Brooks said. “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 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).
