Garrido no longer head coach for Longhorns

Following a 25-32 season that did not include a trip to the NCAA tournament, Augie Garrido will relinquish his duties as Longhorns coach. </p> </p> He has accepted a position as Special Assistant to the Athletics Director. </p> </p> Garrido is college baseball's all-time wins leader (1,975 wins) and he is the first baseball coach to lead two different schools to national titles. </p> </p> Garrido guided squads to National Championships in four different decades, and is one of only three coaches in history to win five or more NCAA titles (1979, 1984, 1995, 2002, 2005). </p> </p> He finished his Longhorn career with a record of 824-427-2 (.658). </p> </p> "I owe everyone at The University of Texas a million heartfelt thank you's," said Garrido. "I came here to serve and I am so proud to be able to continue to serve The University in my new role as Special Assistant to Mike Perrin." </p> </p> A national search for Garrido's successor at Texas will begin immediately. </p> </p> "Augie and I met today and had a very good talk," Perrin said. "I asked him to serve as my special assistant and he has graciously accepted. We both care deeply for The University of Texas and our baseball program. I am beyond appreciative of all that Augie has done for Texas baseball and want to celebrate those successes. I'm happy he'll be continuing to work with me as a special assistant and looking forward to working with him in that role." </p> </p> Garrido led Texas to eight College World Series appearances, winning schools fifth National Championship in 2002 and sixth in 2005. The Horns were runners-up twice (2004, 2009) and posted a pair of third-place finishes (2003, 2014). </p>
