Northern Colorado alum and former Men's College World Series skipper at Nebraska Mike Anderson has been named the 10th head coach in UNC Baseball history in June of 2022. Returning to the Blue and Gold, Anderson played for the Bears from 1983-86 under legendary head coach Tom Petroff and was drafted in the eighth round of the 1986 draft by the California Angels. Anderson brings over 30 years of coaching experience to the position and an astute eye for talent.
