BYU Baseball coach relieved of coaching duties


After 13 seasons of coaching the BYU baseball team, Vance Law will not continue as the head coach of the Cougars.

Athletic director Tom Holmoe announced that Law’s contract will not be renewed for the next season. Assistant coaches Ryan Roberts and Wally Ritchie will continue coaching and take over the program until a new head coach is hired.

After 13 seasons, Law had a record of 397-347-2 as well as coaching four All-Americans.  Additionally, during his coaching career at BYU Law led the Cougars to a conference title in 2001.

During Saturday’s game against Gonzaga, each player wore a wristband with the number two on it to honor Law’s legacy at BYU.

“I’m grateful for the opportunity I had to coach these young men,” Law said, “I hope they left better men than they came by their association with us.”
