Huskies make change on the diamond

Ken Knutson who has been the baseball coach at Washington the past 17 years will not be returning next season and his association with the University will end on June 30th.

Knutson has provided stability to an undersfunded sports program which lack the facilities to compete with other Pac 10 members. The Husky baseball stadium is still uncompleted almost a decade after construction was started under the campaign for the student athlete.

A 1981 graduate of Washington, Knutson compiled a 584-399-2 overall record as the Huskies' head coach and went 240-189 against Pac-10 opponents. He has the most wins in school history and was named Pac-10 North Division Coach of the Year three times during his tenure. He led Washington to two Pac-10 titles, four division championships and six appearances in the NCAA Tournament.

Washington State returned to the NCAA tournament this past season. Oregon State has won two national championships, and the UW softball team just fisnished winning their first national championship. Perhaps Washington which plans to complete the baseball stadium in the near future plans to ramp up the direction of the program.
