ORLANDO – UCF Athletics Director
Steve Orsini announced that UCF head baseball coach Jay Bergman has agreed to a
new five-year contract. Bergman, in his 22nd year at UCF, is now under contract
through the 2008 season.
"We wanted to make a long term commitment to Jay based on what he has meant to this program," stated Orsini. "His name is on the field and we are very proud of Jay."
Bergman has transformed the UCF baseball program into one of the nation's elite. With a career record of 1,043-587-3 and a UCF mark of 827-474, Bergman has led the Golden Knights to eight NCAA Tournament appearances and six Atlantic Sun Championships. In 2002, Bergman became the 25th coach in NCAA history to capture 1,000 career wins.
"I am very pleased with the new contract and I really appreciate all of the hard work that Steve Orsini and the athletics department did to make this happen," said Bergman. "It meant a lot to me personally to get the deal done and I know it took some extra preparation from Steve and the department. I look forward to continue the winning tradition here at UCF."
More than 100 of Bergman's former players have signed professional contracts including five first round selections. A total of 10 former players have also reached Major League Baseball including current Detroit Tiger Mike Maroth.
