Collegiate Coach Will Retire At End Of NCAA Season

Florida’s Buddy Alexander, who led the Gators to national championships in 1993 and 2001, announced today he will retire at the completion of the current season.

Alexander, 61, also was a two-time All-American as a collegiate player at Georgia Southern. He is the longest tenured coach on Florida’s campus, and the second-longest (behind 1950s-’60s-era baseball coach Dave Fuller) in UF history.

“He’s one of the all-time greats,’’ Florida athletics director Jeremy Foley said. “He’s had a heck of a run. There’s no better Gator than Buddy Alexander.”
