Ohio State baseball coach Greg Beals was given a three-year contract extension by the university’s board of trustees, keeping the nine-season veteran at the head of the program through the 2023 season.
Beals last month led his team to a Big Ten tournament title, OSU’s second in the past four years. The seventh-seeded Buckeyes became the lowest seed to capture the conference tournament title.
Ohio State also appeared in the NCAA tournament for the third time in four years, and the 22nd time in program history. The Buckeyes were eliminated from the Nashville regional by Indiana State, finishing the season with a 36-27 record.
The 36 wins marked the second-most for OSU in Beals’ tenure, behind only the 2016 season when his team went 44-20-1.
Beals has an overall record at OSU of 261-203-1. He previously coached at Ball State, where he earned 243 wins. Beals is third among active Big Ten coaches in Division I career wins.
Beals has coached 22 players selected in the major-league amateur draft, three All-Americans and 36 All-Big Ten honorees. Twenty-two of Beals’ players earned OSU scholar-athlete status this year, and 12 were named as Academic All-Big Ten.
