SOURCE: Randy Mazey Likely to Retire Soon as Head Coach at WVU

West Virginia’s long-time head baseball coach is expected to step away from the program within the next couple of years.  

MORGANTOWN, West Virginia — According to a source close to the situation, it’s expected that Randy Mazey, the long-time head baseball coach at West Virginia, will announce his retirement soon.

Mazey will continue to coach next season and perhaps the following season after that, but a succession plan is reportedly in place where current Associate Head Coach Steve Sabins will take over the team when Mazey officially steps down.

Sabins, who has been with the program for 8 seasons, is also the program’s recruiting coordinator and was responsible for bringing in one of the Mountaineers’ top recruiting classes ever.  It was rumored that Sabins received significant interest from other programs as a head coach and several key players would have followed him if he left, but ultimately he decided to remain with West Virginia and will likely get the title of “head coach in waiting” for the Mountaineers.

Mazey, who has been at West Virginia since 2013, is 296-230 at WVU and is the fourth-winningest coach in the program’s history.

Mazey, 57, was named the Big 12 Baseball Coach of the Year in 2019 and 2023, and led the Mountaineers to a 40-20 overall record last season and a Big 12 Regular Season Championship.

An official announcement from the university is expected in the coming days.
