ATLANTA-Danny Hall, whose Georgia Tech baseball teams have averaged more than 43 wins per season over the last 15 years, has signed a one-year contract extension, athletic director Dan Radakovich announced Monday. The new deal extends his contract through the 2012 season.
Hall became the Yellow Jackets’ all-time leader in coaching victories
in 2005 and has compiled a 652-294 (.689) record at Georgia Tech. His
teams have won at least 40 games in 12 of his 15 seasons with the Yellow Jackets and eclipsed the 30-win mark every year.
“Our baseball program has garnered unprecedented success, both within the conference and on the national level,” Radakovich said, “and
Danny is the primary person responsible for that success. He continues to recruit the brightest and most talented student-athletes in the nation and that has translated into the success this program has
achieved over the last 15 years.”
In Hall’s 15 seasons as Tech’s head coach, the Jackets have made 13
NCAA Tournament and three College World Series appearances, won three Atlantic Coast Conference championships (2000, 2003, 2005) and captured ACC regular season crowns in 1997, 2000, 2004 and 2005. The three-time ACC Coach of the Year (1997, 2000, 2005), Hall’s players have earned All-America honors 27 times while more than 80 of his student-athletes have signed professional contracts since 1994.
