Brad Hill’s tenure as Kansas State’s head baseball coach will end after the 2018 season, the university announced on Tuesday.
Hill took over the program in 2004 and has elevated the Wildcats to new heights in his 15 seasons.
Kansas State is experiencing a rocky 2018 campaign. Hill will finish his career, however, as the Wildcats’ all-time winningest head coach.
“With the best interest of the program in mind, I have decided to step aside after 15 seasons,” Hill said in a release. “It’s come time for the program to move in a new direction and regain the energy it once had, and with the new facility on the horizon, now is the perfect time.
“My family and I will forever be grateful for the opportunity to be a part of such a special place and we now look forward to the next chapter in our lives.”
Hill won two Big 12 Coach of the Year awards (2009, 2013). He guided Kansas State to the program’s only Big 12 championship in 2013. He also helped the Wildcats reach their first Super Regional appearance.
Kansas State (18-29, 3-18 Big 12) wraps its Big 12 slate with a home series against Kansas this weekend. Hill’s final home game as Kansas State’s coach is scheduled for 1 p.m. ET, Sunday.
