Anderson fired at Nebraska
Nebraska head coach Mike Anderson and his staff
have been relieved of their duties by Athletic Director Tom
The Cornhuskers were 30-25 overall and 9-17 in
their final season in the Big 12. Nebraska finished ninth out of
the 10 teams which compete in baseball.
Anderson spent nine seasons as head coach of the
Huskers, posting a record of 337-196-2 with a pair of Big 12
championships (2003, 2005) and a trip to the College World
Series in 2003. Nebraska won a school-record 57 games in 2003
and registered its first CWS win. The Huskers reached the NCAA
Regionals in five of Anderson’s first six seasons, but none in
the past three years.
Anderson was an assistant at Nebraska for eight
seasons from 1995 to 2002 before his elevation to head coach in
June of 2002.
The search for a replacement begins immediately.
