GREENSBORO, N.C. – UNCG baseball coach Mike Gaski's contract will not be renewed when it expires on June 30, Director of Athletics Kim Record announced Saturday.

Gaski, the only coach in the history of UNCG's baseball program, finishes his UNCG career with a 657-540-1 record in 22 years at the helm. He was a four-time conference coach of the year and led the Spartans to NCAA regional appearances in 1994 and 1997.

He led UNCG to a 25-27 overall record this season with a 10-20 Southern Conference mark.

"Making leadership changes is always difficult, but considering the needs of our student-athletes and the long-term success of the program is what has to be at the core of any decision I make," Record said. "Mike Gaski will always be considered the architect of this program, and few people will ever fully understand the depth of his commitment to and for UNCG baseball. I admire and respect coach Gaski's vision. It's not often that someone is able to build a program from scratch and watch it grow over a 20-year period. I respect and admire what he's done."

A national search for Gaski's replacement will begin immediately.
