Wichita State Fires College Baseball Titan Gene Stephenson

Gene Stephenson, the second-winningest coach in college baseball history, has been fired after 36 seasons as Wichita State’s head coach. One of the most important figures in the sport’s history, Stephenson, 67, built the Shockers from the ground up, going 1,837-673-3 (.731) and leading the program to seven College World Series trips, the 1989 national title, and 28 regionals—including the Manhattan Regional this year, the Shockers’ first postseason trip since 2009.
