West Virginia and Head Coach Randy Mazey have agreed to a five year contract extension through the 2022 season. In his first five years as the Mountaineer skipper, he holds a 160-127 record with an NCAA tournament appearance, which was the programs first postseason birth in 21 years.
The West Virginia baseball program has always been viewed as a sub-par or average baseball team throughout its history, that is until now. Mazey has completely reshaped the programs image and how it is viewed across the national landscape. He guided the Mountaineers to the Big 12 Conference Championship game In 2016 in which the team almost pulled off a huge comeback win over TCU. West Virginia was snubbed from making the tournament last year, but followed it up with a 36-26 record in 2017 which earned them the number two seed in the Winston-Salem regional.
There is no doubt that West Virginia has become a force to be reckoned with in the Big 12 over the past couple of years and with the team continuing to bring in top talent I don’t see this changing anytime soon. The Mountaineers have definitely upgraded in their facilities including a brand spanking new ballpark which will continue to help in recruiting. I think it is safe to say that Mazey has resurrected the program and could be one of the countries best head coaches considering the situation he walked into.
