Coaching Carousel

John Szefc is staying at Maryland for a fourth season, after many experts named him as a prime candidate to fill the coaching vacancy at Clemson. Clemson instead hired Monte Lee, who led the College of Charleston to the NCAA Tournament in 2015.

Northwestern baseball hired Spencer Allen to succeed long-time head coach Paul Stevens, who served on the staff in Evanston for the past 31 years. Learn more about Coach Allen in this article by Alex Putterman of The Daily Northwestern:
