Robbie Wine Resigns as Head Baseball Coach
After a disappointing nine seasons, Penn State baseball coach Robbie Wine resigned Tuesday. Wine could never get the program off the ground, as he finished with a 13-36 record last year and posted an overall record of 228-261.
“I am excited to start a new chapter in my life and look forward to what lies ahead. My experience at Penn State has made me a better coach and person. I thank the student-athletes I had the opportunity to coach, mentor and develop on and off the field. I wish them all the best of luck. They will always be a part of my family,” said Wine in a press release announcing his resignation.
“I am proud of our accomplishments, growth and direction of the program under my leadership and I wish the best of luck to the next head coach, his staff and the student-athletes.”
Even though Wine never won a Big 10 championship, 14 players throughout his nine year career have been drafted by MLB teams. Most recently, first baseman Jordan Steranka and pitcher Joe Kurrasch were drafted in 2012 by the Houston Astros and San Francisco Giants, respectively.
The search is now on for Penn State’s next baseball coach. It will be interesting to see if the next hire can bring the Nittany Lions out of college baseball mediocrity and transform them into a consistent contender.
