Tony Haley enters his 13th season at the helm of the WC baseball program.
The Quakers have struggled over the past few seasons, but have a number of talented newcomers entering the program ready to turn things around.
"We have a solid core of senior leaders and we hope our talented group of new guys can get us to the top of the OAC," Haley said.
Haley earned OAC Coach-of-the-Year honors in 2005 after leading Wilmington to a 22-15 record and the team's first-ever OAC Tournament appearance.
In addition, the 2005 Quakers ranked first in the OAC and 14th nationally with a .348 team batting average. For the fourth consecutive season, the Quakers finished above the .500 mark in 2005 and also recorded their second 20-plus win season in three years.
In 2003, Haley led the Quakers to a 24-14 record. The .632 winning percentage ranked third on the school's all-time single season list and the 24 wins are the highest total in Haley's tenure. In 2002, Haley led Wilmington to a 19-18 finish marking the program's first winning season since 1992. Bouncing back from a 7-30 record in 2001, the team had the fifth-best turnaround among all NCAA programs in the country.
Haley resides in Wilmington with his wife Pam. They have three children. Ryan, Parker and Kelli Jo.
