OU baseball coach resigns

University of Oklahoma Athletics Director Joe Castiglione said head baseball coach Pete Hughes has resigned. Hughes coached the Sooners for four seasons and compiled a 128-107-1 (.544) record. His teams went a combined 44-51 (.463) in Big 12 Conference play, finishing as high as third place in 2015 (tied) and 2017.

This past season, OU went 35-24 overall and 12-11 in the Big 12, and advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the first time under Hughes. The Sooners posted a 1-2 record in the Louisville Regional as the No. 2 seed.

It was the 37th NCAA postseason appearance in OU baseball history.

Castiglione said the search for a new coach will begin immediately. In 21 years as a head coach, Hughes has a 652-492-3 (.570) record.
