Great great!! Yes, you heard correctly!! Taking that pitching and that fielding to the finals of the college World Series and coming within a muffed pop foul of winning it all is perhaps the greatest coaching job in history.
Well done Davey boy!!
You have made many of us love baseball again.

Very deserving of a contract extension.

Coach Morris and Coach Anderson will have a difficult time EVER getting their teams that far.

Great on field results, great off field results (you never hear about UA baseball players getting in trouble), and great financial results (UA baseball is one of the few NCAA baseball programs that generates a profit year over year (most operate at a loss).

Guess who won the College World Series 2 years ago? Coastal Carolina, a small liberal arts college in Conway, South Carolina and member of the Sun Belt Conference. How hard could it be??

Give the man a big raise! There isn't a lot more he can do that he hasn't done for the Razorback nation, other than keep doing it, which I am sure he will.
