SU Baseball's Fleetwood To Step Aside After 14 Seasons

Posted: Updated:

Salisbury, MD - Salisbury University announced Friday afternoon that long time baseball head coach Doug Fleetwood will step aside from his duties at the conclusion of the 2014 season to focus on his duties as the offensive coordinator for the Sea Gulls football team.

During his tenure as skipper for the Gulls, he has built a 467-145-6 record (.761). During that time, he helped guide the way to three NCAA World Series appearances, 13 NCAA Tournaments and nine CAC Championships. His .761 winning percentage in that time is second among active Division III coaches and ranks sixth all-time.

In 2008, Fleetwood guided the Sea Gulls to one of their best seasons in program history. In 2013, Salisbury won a school-record 41 games, including 35 consecutive. Later that year, Fleetwood was inducted into Maryland State Association of Baseball Coaches Hall of Fame.

In a statement issued from Salisbury University, coach Fleetwood said, "I have been fortunate to find a home as a coach that has allowed me to be a part of two outstanding programs and, while it is difficult to end my time as the head baseball coach, I feel it will only benefit the program to have a coach who is afforded the opportunity to be fully invested in the team and its student-athletes. I'm excited to continue my work with the players, coaches and fans of Sea Gull athletics with the football team as we continue to grow."

Salisbury will begin looking for a new head coach immediately.
