Florida Gators head baseball coach Kevin O’Sullivan was named the Skip Bertman National Coach of the Year on Wednesday.
O’Sullivan was previously named the National Coach of the Year by D1baseball.com and Collegiate Baseball. This marks the second time O’Sullivan, who just completed his 10th season at Florida, has been named National Coach of the Year. He was first awarded the honor in 2011 by Baseball America.
“Kevin O’Sullivan’s club showed both heart and perseverance in bringing the school its first national championship,” said Mike Gustafson, president and CEO of the National College Baseball Hall of Fame and chair of the Bertman Award committee. “We’re honored to present this award to coach O’Sullivan for this tremendous accomplishment.”
Florida finished 52-19 on its way to the school’s first National Championship. It was the third straight 50-win season for O’Sullivan’s Gators and the fourth under his tenure.
