After a trip to the NCAA Tournament this season, Nebraska is looking for a new face to lead its baseball program.
On Monday, the school announced that head coach Darin Erstad has stepped down from his post after eight seasons with the Huskers. The news is a bit of a shocker, considering how well the baseball program has been under his guidance.
Erstad led Nebraska to a 32-24 record this season and a trip to the NCAA Tournament. The Huskers were eliminated in the regional round of the postseason.
This season marked the fourth time in eight years that the Huskers have reached the NCAA Tournament. They’ve secured a spot in at least the B1G Tournament in seven of those eight years, as well. In 2017, Nebraska was the conference champion.
Nebraska finished with a winning record six times in eight years. Overall, the program was 267-193-1 under Erstad. The Huskers also posted a 111-77-1 record in B1G play.
