UW Baseball coach Lindsay Meggs has received a six-year contract extension after leading the Huskies to a 41-17-1 record in 2014.

Washington baseball coach Lindsay Meggs has received a six-year contract extension after leading the team to one of its best seasons in school history, athletic director Scott Woodward announced Tuesday morning.

Meggs was named Pac-12 Coach of the Year after guiding the UW to a 41-17-1 record in just his fifth season. It was just the fifth time the Huskies have achieved 40 wins, and the first time since 2003. The team also reached as high as No. 5 in multiple college baseball rankings, its highest ranking in school history.

"I'm excited to have the opportunity to lead this program for the next six years and beyond, and I'm also excited that our entire coaching staff will return next year intact." Meggs told Gohuskies.com.

For the first time in a decade the Huskies participated in the NCAA post-season in 2014, finishing 2-2 in the Oxford Regional. The UW lost twice to eventual College World Series participant and host team Ole Miss by one run.

The Huskies were picked 10th in the Pac-12 pre-season poll but finished second, their best Pac-12 finish since 2004. The UW tallied 21 Pac-12 wins, the second most in school history. Meggs is now 140-139-1 in his five years with the UW, and 755-446-5 in 21 seasons as a head coach.
