Mike Fox Named National COY

New, comment

A first for a UNC and ACC baseball coach.

North Carolina head coach Mike Fox, who guided the Tar Heels to a third straight trip to the College World Series in 2008, was named national coach of the year Monday by Baseball America. A two-time ABCA Atlantic Region Coach of the Year, Fox is the first UNC baseball coach to claim national coaching honors and the first Atlantic Coast Conference skipper to be honored by Baseball America.

UNC was won 165 games in the past three seasons which leads the nation, finished 2nd in the CWS twice and 3rd this season, won the first ACC title since 1990 in 2007 and has established UNC as a powerhouse in the growing sport of college baseball.

Congrats Coach Fox and the rest of the Diamond Heels on another outstanding season.
