Maloney won’t return as Michigan baseball coach



ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Michigan says baseball coach Rich Maloney won’t return after his contract runs out June 30.

Athletic director Dave Brandon said Tuesday that he and Maloney “agreed a coaching change at this time was in the best interest of the program.” Maloney says he and the Wolverines reached the decision together.

Michigan was 22-34 in 2012. The Wolverines finished 10th among the Big Ten conference’s 11 baseball teams and had a losing record for the second straight year.

Michigan was 341-244 in 10 seasons under Maloney. In that time, Michigan won three Big Ten titles and two conference tournament championships.
