ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Georgia has fired baseball coach Scott Stricklin, ending a decade-long tenure that failed to produce postseason success. Stricklin was dismissed three days after the Bulldogs were blown out 9-0 by South Carolina in the opening round of the Southeastern Conference tournament. Stricklin had three years left in his contract, but athletic director Josh Brooks decided a change was needed. Georgia went 29-27 this season, including an 11-19 mark in the SEC. Stricklin completed his Georgia tenure with a record of 299-236-1 overall and 121-146-1 in the conference.
