Superior, WI (NNCNOW.com) --- Eddy Morgan has resigned as head coach of the UW-Superior baseball team to become the head coach at Concordia-Wisconsin, the school announced on Wednesday morning.

“They’re transitioning to full-time head coaches so I’ll be able to come to work every day and just worry about baseball," Morgan said of Concordia-Wisconsin. "I will have a full-time assistant coach, I’m located in the middle of a fertile baseball recruiting area and I get to coach every day in the best stadium in Division III (Kapco Park)."

Kapco Park is also the home of the Lakeshore Chinooks, a team in the Northwoods League of which Morgan is in his first season as manager.

Morgan spent seven seasons at UW-Superior and will leave as the school's all-time wins leader, amassing an overall record of (105-169) and a conference mark of (47-121).

He came into a situation that he feels is better for his coaching career and his family and you can’t fault him for making the move,” UW-Superior athletics director Steve Nelson said. “Eddy has done some tremendous things with our baseball program and I couldn’t be more proud of the job he has done here. I wish him all the best in his future at Concordia and beyond.”

Morgan will take over the Concordia-Wisconsin program from Dr. Val Keiper, who spent 30 seasons as the Falcons head coach and will remain on the staff as an assistant.

A search to replace Morgan within the UW-Superior program will begin immediately.
