Lechnir Out as UW-O Baseball Coach
Tom Lechnir has been with the UW-Oshkosh baseball program since 1979. Come 2014, he will no longer be in the dugout.
The longtime player and coach has been forced to step down by athletic director Darryl Sims, reports the Journal Sentinel. The team went 12-10 in the WIAC conference this season and 23-14 overall. They did not qualify for the Division III regionals for the 5th consecutive season.
Lechnir's career record with the Titans ends at 728-292-1. He guided the Titans to a national championship in 1994 and 12 conference titles.
Lechnir did not immediately return a message left for him by NBC26.
