Head Coach Rob Vaughn signs contract extension through June 2027

Maryland Baseball Head Coach Rob Vaughn agreed to a contract extension through June 2027, per an announcement Monday afternoon from the team.

Vaughn earned the extension after his club finished the year with the most regular season wins in school history with a 48-14 record, accounting for a .774 win percentage. 

A season in which the 34-year-old skipper won the Big Ten Coach of the Year, he led the Terps to an 18-5 record in conference matchups and their first conference title since 1971.

Several players earned honors under Vaughn’s leadership this season including six All-Big Ten First Team (Kevin Keister, Nick Lorusso, Chris Alleyne, Ryan Ramsey, Jason Savacool, Matt Shaw), one All-Big Ten Second Team (Luke Shliger) and three All-Big Ten Third Team (Troy Schreffler Jr., Nick Dean, Maxwell Costes). Alleyne also finished as Big Ten Player of the Year.

Maryland hosted the first-ever College Park Regional this season in which they battled Long Island University, Wake Forest, and UConn at Bob “Turtle” Smith Stadium.

Vaughn has been a part of the Maryland coaching staff since 2013 and since becoming head coach in 2018, he has a record of 141-96 (.680 win percentage). 

The most recent players to get drafted by Major League Baseball under Vaughn are RHP Sean Burke (Round 3, Chicago White Sox) and SS Benjamin Cowles (Round 10, New York Yankees). Several more players are expected to be selected in the 2022 MLB Draft next month.

With Vaughn staying in College Park for five more seasons, the program looks to build off its historic 2022 campaign.
