EKU cans Stein

Posted on 01 June 2015 by Allen


Eastern Kentucky University head baseball coach Jason Stein will not be retained, Director of Athletics Steve Lochmueller announced today. A search for the Colonels’ next head coach will begin immediately.

Stein posted a 178-201 record in seven seasons as head coach. The 1997 EKU grad led the Colonels to a share of the Ohio Valley Conference Championship in 2012. His 2013 team advanced to the championship round of the OVC Tournament.

Stein’s squad qualified for the six-team OVC Tournament four times in seven seasons. The Colonels went a combined 4-8 in conference tournament games, with three of those victories coming in the 2013 run to the championship round.

Eastern finished the 2015 campaign with a 21-29 record and placed eighth in the OVC with a 12-17 mark.

It will be interesting to see who the Colonels bring in to lead the baseball team. EKU made a splash by bringing in former Rick Pitino assistant Dan McHale earlier this year to be their new basketball coach
