Inside Pitch recently caught up with University of Texas head coach Augie Garrido, NCAA Division I’s all-time winningest coach. The only coach in baseball history to tally 1,900 or more career wins is currently in his 20th season at Texas and 48th season as a head coach overall, with previous stops at Illinois and Cal State Fullerton. He has led the Longhorns to a combined 12 Big 12 titles (regular season and tournament), eight College World Series, two national titles and two second-place finishes. Garrido was the first coach to lead two different schools to national crowns (Fullerton & Texas), guide his teams to National Championships in four different decades, and is one of only three coaches in history to win five or more NCAA titles (1979, 1984, 1995, 2002, 2005).
