Iowa baseball coach Scott Broghamer has resigned after six seasons at the helm. The likeable Broghamer spent the last 17-seasons in the Hawkeye program and replaced Duane Banks as head coach following the 1997 season. Iowa Associate Athletic Director Fred Mims who will lead the search for a new coach, says Broghamer is a wonderful individual who unfortunately couldn’t get the job done. Iowa’s best season under Broghamer was in 2002 when the Hawkeyes finished 26-29 and qualified for the Big Ten tournament for the first time since 1990. This spring, the Hawks faltered to an 18-29 overall mark and finished 10-21 in the Big Ten.Mims believes the baseball program can become a consistent winner and a “highlight program in the state of Iowa.” He says the resources are there to make the program successful. Mims wants the search to begin as soon as possible. Mims says he can’t speculate on how long a search may take.Iowa’s last Big Ten championship came back in 1990 but since then the Hawks have finished fifth or better just twice in the last 13-years.
