Source: Maestri returning as UNO baseball coach


A UNO legend is returning to the Lakefront. Former baseball coach and athletic director Ron Maestri is returning to the dugout to coach the Privateer baseball team in 2014, a source told FOX 8 Sports.

Maestri will replace Bruce Peddie who was relieved of his duties earlier this year.

Maestri put UNO baseball on the map. He coached the Privateers for 14 seasons and compiled a 518-247-1 record during his tenure. His teams made nine NCAA Tournaments and a College World Series back in 1984.

A press conference to announce the hiring will be Tuesday.
