Clemson Baseball Coach Jack Leggett has signed a new five-year contract. Terms of the contract were not released pending the final execution of the contract by Clemson University Administration.


"We are thrilled that Jack Leggett has signed a new five-year contract," said Phillips. "He is an outstanding coach and individual who has always been a great ambassador for this University. He is well respected by his baseball peers, his players, and all the employees within this department. His consistent accomplishments as a head coach of this program rank him among the top coaches in the nation."
Leggett has been the head coach at Clemson for 13 years and has taken the program to the NCAA Tournament all 13 seasons. Five times he has brought the Tigers to the College World Series, including 1996 and 2002 when he guided the program to the Final Four of the event.
In 2006, he led Clemson to a 53-16 record, the ACC Championship, the Clemson Regional, the Clemson Super Regional Championship, and a berth in the College World Series. Clemson also had the best regular-season record in the ACC (24-6). It marked the first time since 1991 that Clemson won the ACC regular season, an NCAA Regional and reached the College World Series in the same year.


"I am excited to sign this new contract," said Leggett. "Clemson is a great place, it has great administrators, great coaches and this is a community and tradition I want to be a part of. I want to thank Terry Don Phillips, we had a great dialogue in this process."
