Ty Neal steps down as Bearcats baseball coach
I don’t follow the baseball programs as closely as I follow the football and basketball programs, but on Tuesday the Bearcats lost a good coach. They say he left because of personal reasons so I hope whatever is happening in his life will be fixed by stepping away from the game for a little bit. We wish Ty Neal the best in whatever the future may hold.
University of Cincinnati Director of Athletics Mike Bohn announced Tuesday that baseball head coach Ty Neal has resigned his position for personal reasons.
Neal recently completed his fourth season at UC with a record of 91-130-1.
“We respect Coach Neal’s decision to step down,” Bohn said. “We appreciate what Ty has done to escalate the academic and athletic profiles of the program with an APR score which improved from 948 to 989 and an RPI which improved 147 spots over the past four years. We wish him the best moving forward.”
Cincinnati finished the 2017 regular season with a 28-28 record overall and a 10-14 mark in American Athletic Conference play.
Ted Tom will serve as the program’s interim head coach for the 2017 postseason. Tom is in his third season at UC and had a 203-193 record in seven seasons as the head coach at Shawnee State University.
