Broghamer just completed his sixth season as Iowa's head coach and had a 123-183 record. His 2002 Hawkeyes qualified for the Big Ten tournament. He was a graduate assistant for two years before becoming an assistant to Duane Banks in 1989. He was named Iowa's head coach following the 1997 season.
"Leaving the Iowa baseball program is the hardest thing I've ever done," said Broghamer. "But, I think it's time for someone else to assume the reigns of power in Hawkeye baseball. We did our best, but I, like everyone else associated with the program, wish our hard work could have translated into more victories.
"I would like to especially thank all the coaches and athletic staff at Iowa for all they've done for my family and I over the past 17 years. The enjoyment I've received from working with this staff will never be forgotten. I'd like to give special thanks to Duane Banks for having confidence in me and for giving a high school coach an opportunity to work at one of the finest Universities in the country."
