Head baseball coach Bill Kernen announced his retirement from college baseball last week, ending his six-year run with the Roadrunners effective July 1. Kernen was the first coach of this program, hired in 2007 to build a new team from the ground up.
He did that and a little more, putting our baseball program on the national stage, beating powerhouses like UCLA, Fresno State and South Carolina while we were an Independent. He then won the Western Athletic Conference last season while taking home conference coach of the year honors for his efforts as well.
