Reports: UGA to hire Kent State's Stricklin as baseball coach

Posted: Updated:

The University of Georgia is close to hiring Kent State head baseball coach Scott Stricklin to replace Dave Perno.

That according to Saturday reports from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Stricklin has agreed in principle to take over the Bulldogs' program, according to the article, and an official announcement is expected Monday or Tuesday.

The 41-year-old has spent the last nine seasons at his alma mater at Kent State, guiding the Golden Flashes to five Mid-American Conference titles, five NCAA regional appearances, and one College World Series berth, last season.

Kent State was 350-188 in nine years under Stricklin.

He would replace Perno, who was dismissed earlier this month after 12 years as Georgia's head coach. The Bulldogs finished this season 21-32 overall, and last in the SEC at 7-20.

    It's kind of an odd road trip in the middle of the season for the Auburn Tigers. They play Thursday night at Kansas State. It will be their first game this year against a ranked opponent.
