Serrano Takes Over At Tennessee PDF Print

David Serrano is right back where it all began just 17 seasons ago.

Serrano, one of 11 NCAA baseball coaches to take two different programs to the College World Series, has been named the new baseball coach at the University of Tennessee. He replaces Todd Raleigh, who was dismissed in late April.
Serrano led Cal-Irvine to the CWS in 2007, and he took Cal State-Fullerton to Omaha in 2009. Serrano has won 289 games during his seven-year stint as a college baseball coach at the Division I level. And he returns to Knoxville, where his collegiate coaching career began.
He was an assistant coach with the Vols for two seasons, 1995 and 1996.
"Dave is a proven winner and is a perfect fit as the head baseball coach at the University of Tennessee," said interim vice chancellor for athletics Joan Cronan. "He has taken two programs to the College World Series as a head coach, and we are confident that he is the right coach to lead our program to national prominence."
The Vols were a disappointing 25-29 this season, which includes a woeful 7-23 mark in the Southeastern Conference. Serrano averaged 44 wins a year during his four-year stay at CSFU. The Titans were 41-17 this season. They were eliminated by Illinois in the Fullerton Regional.
Serrano becomes the 24th baseball coach in school history.
