UNO baseball coach agrees to contract extension
NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The University of New Orleans and baseball coach Blake Dean has agreed to a two-year contract extension that will keep him with the program through the 2022 season.
Further contract details were not released.
News outlets report Dean has guided the Privateers to a 90-86-1 mark in three seasons and back-to-back-to-back Southland Conference tournament appearances. In 2018, UNO advanced to the championship game as the No. 8 seed, defeating No. 1 Sam Houston State University and No. 4 Houston Baptist University twice to get there.
Dean took over for UNO legend Ron Maestri following the 2015 season but had been with the program for two years prior to becoming the head coach.
Dean says he's grateful for the extension and opportunity to lead the program and represent New Orleans.
