Milligan Baseball part ways with Grewe

For the second time in less than a year, the Milligan College baseball program is looking for a new head coach.

David Grewe is no longer at the helm of the baseball team after accepting the school’s head coaching job last August. Vice President for Athletics & Student Development Mark Fox confirmed the change on Tuesday afternoon.

Fox was unable to comment on Grewe’s departure. Milligan is currently conducting interviews this week and hope to have a decision by Monday.

“Milligan is a unique opportunity for a coach,” Fox said. “We want it to be a special experience for our players.”

Grewe led Milligan to a 20-26 overall record and the squad went 11-16 in Appalachian Athletic Conference action. The Buffaloes went 0-2 in the AAC tournament.

Prior to coming to Milligan, Grewe previously was the head coach at Michigan State and was an assistant at LSU. He also had coaching stops at Notre Dame, Central Michigan and the University of Chicago.

Grewe worked as a corporate business consultant and college recruiting expert for seven years before accepting the Milligan job.

Grewe replaced long-time head coach Nathan Meade who was at the helm of the Buffaloes program for 12 seasons.
