WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - OREGON STATE head Coach Pat Casey has been named National Coach of The Year by Collegiate Baseball, becoming the fifth Pac-10 coach to receive the award.
Casey, who earns his first National Coach of the Year honor by the newspaper, led the Beavers to its first national championship with a 3-2 win over North Carolina at the College World Series. The victory concluded a remarkable run for the Beavers, who lost their first game in Omaha but reached the championship with four straight wins. After losing Game 1 to North Carolina, Oregon State pulled out two victories.
Oregon State (50-16) became the first team in 60 years of the CWS to lose twice in Omaha and win the national title. Oregon State also is the first truly Northern-based school to win the series since Ohio State in 1966.
