Savage sticking around in Westwood

Lot of excitement from Ryan's baseball previews.

I will pile on a little with some great news:

UCLA head baseball coach John Savage and the University have agreed to a contract extension running through the 2015 season, athletic director Dan Guerrero announced Tuesday.

Entering his seventh year as head coach when the college baseball season opens this Friday, Savage has led UCLA to four NCAA postseason appearances in six seasons in Westwood. He guided the Bruins to their third appearance at the College World Series last summer, advancing to the best-of-three finals for the first time in school history.

"We are very excited about the success of this program," Guerrero said. "Under John's exceptional and passionate leadership, UCLA baseball is poised for long-term excellence. Just last season, he guided the team to its first-ever appearance in the finals of the College World Series and set a school record for single-season wins. I have enjoyed the distinct pleasure of working with John for almost a decade. UCLA has a bright and promising future with him at the helm."

"I am very appreciative to Dan Guerrero for his support of UCLA baseball," Savage said. "Not only are we excited about our upcoming season, but also about the long-term future of this baseball program. We look forward to building upon our success, returning to the College World Series and winning a national championship."

Congratulations to Coach Savage.
