Clemson’s Director of Athletics announced Thursday that Jack Leggett will no longer be Clemson’s head baseball coach.Jack Leggett has been with the Clemson baseball team for 22 years.

Director of Athletics Dan Radakovich says, “This decision was not an easy one.”

According to Clemson University Sports, Leggett is leaving a legacy of 955 winning games, and six College World Series appearances.

Under the coaching of Leggett the tigers have won regional titles in 2000, 2001, 2002, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009, and 2010.

Leggett was Clemson’s 26th head baseball coach. Along with Leggett there has only been one other head coach for Clemson baseball since 1958.

One of the many accomplishments Leggett achieved in his time at Clemson was his induction into the ABCA Hall of Fame last January.

“Jack has meant so much over the last 22 years as a head coach at Clemson that I could not do justice to his impact on our program,” Radakovich said.
