Dailey leaves Menlo College baseball program


Matt Dailey, who led the Menlo College baseball team to its first ever postseason appearance last spring, has accepted an assistant coaching position at Pacific University in Oregon it was announced Thursday.

Dailey accumulated a 71-50 overall record in three years as the Oaks' coach.

"I'm extremely proud of the accomplishments we were able to achieve during my time at Menlo," Daily said. "We had a special group of players and coaches that put in an incredible effort and were real passionate about baseball and academics."

Dailey was named Division III Independent Coach of the Year Award in 2010 and then helped produce a single-season record 32 wins last season.

"Matt has done an outstanding job building our baseball team into a first class program," Oaks Athletic Director Keith Spataro said. "From fundraising to facility renovation, he has transformed Menlo Baseball. Fortunately for us his efforts off the field have translated into great success on the field as well. He will be hard to replace, but the foundation he has laid will certainly be advantageous to the new head coach."
