Head Coach - San Diego State Univ., 2007 Hall of Fame Inductee
Former major league all-star and San Diego State All-American Tony Gwynn is one of the newest members of the National Baseball Hall of Fame after being inducted in July 2007. He received 97.6 of the ballots cast as he was honored for a standout 20-year major league career.
Gwynn became only the fourth head coach in SDSU history since the sport of baseball was elevated to "major" varsity status in 1936. He succeeded the coach for whom he played for three years during his collegiate baseball career.
It didn't take him long to become acclimated to the college game as he was named the Mountain West Conference Coach of the Year in just his second season after leading the Aztecs to the league's regular-season title in 2004. After five seasons at the helm of the Aztec program, his coaching record in league play stands at 80-54 (.597). His teams have finished among the top three in the conference very year.
