ATHENS, Ga. — Scott Stricklin, who led Kent State to five NCAA regionals and the 2012 College World Series, is taking over the Georgia program.

Georgia athletic director Greg McGarity on Monday named Stricklin to replace David Perno, who resigned last month.

The 41-year-old Stricklin was 350-188 during nine seasons at Kent State, his alma mater. He led the program to five Mid-American Conference titles.

Stricklin had 30 players drafted. His players also excelled in academics, recording perfect 1,000 scores in the NCAA’s Academic Performance Rate (APR) report from 2010-12.

Stricklin is a former assistant at Georgia Tech and Vanderbilt.

Georgia made three College World Series appearances under Perno but had losing records in Southeastern Conference games three of the last four years. It finished last in the SEC at 7-20 this season.

Another Kent State coach stolen

Purdue took our football coach, Georgia takes our baseball coach. You're getting a great coach, but that doesn't mean I have to like it.
