Pac-10 Baseball News: George Horton leaves Cal State Fullerton to coach Oregon
According to Janis Carr of the Orange County Register, Oregon's baseball program will be coached by Cal State Fullerton's George Horton. Over Horton's 11 years with the Titans, his teams made 6 appearances in Omaha, taking home the title in 2004. UC-Irvine's Dave Serrano turned the job down last week, and were also interested in Oregon State's Pat Casey. The Oregon baseball program begins play in 2009. I'm guessing that $100 million gift donation to the program from Nike's Phil Knight had some influence on the decision.
