Jack Dahm says the challenge of turning around the Iowa baseball program relit his fire to coach. Dahm will try to rekindle a Hawkeye program that has finished third or better in the Big Ten just once in the last 13 years. Dahm says Iowa is a “sleeping giant” and he looks forward to turning around attitudes about Iowa baseball, and make it one of the premiere programs in the Midwest and in the Big Ten. Dahm spent the past 18 years in the Creighton program and as head coach led the Blue Jays to the NCAA tournament on two occasions. He resigned as head coach at the end of this past season. “It wasn’t a burn-out as much as I needed a change,” Dahm says. He says Iowa has the commitment and the facilities needed for a successful program. Dahm says he’s seen first-hand what Nebraska did, and his first goal at Iowa will be to get the team in the College World Series in Omaha. Dahm replaces Scott Broghamer who resigned after six seasons at the helm.
