Glavine tabbed to take over at Northeastern
BOSTON (AP) — Northeastern has announced that alumnus and current assistant Mike Glavine will take over as head coach of the Huskies baseball program when current coach Neil McPhee retires at the end of the 2014 season.
Glavine will become the program’s fourth head coach in 59 years.
He has been an assistant since 2007 after playing for the Huskies from 1992 to 1995. He still ranks as one of the top home run and RBI hitters in team history.
He was drafted by the Cleveland Indians and had a 10-year professional career that culminated in a brief stint in the majors with the New York Mets in 2003.
While with the Mets, he played with his brother, Tom, a two-time Cy Young Award winner in a 22-year major league career in New York and Atlanta.
