BLOOMINGTON, IN - Former Citadel baseball star and assistant coach Chris Lemonis has been named the head coach at Indiana University.

Lemonis recently completed his eighth season as the recruiting coordinator and hitting coach at Louisville under Dan McDonnell, helping the Cardinals win 359 games and earn three trips to the College World Series (2008, 2013 and 2014). He also assisted in the development of numerous all-conference selections, including two players of the year, and 15 All-Americans.

Following the 2013 season, Lemonis was honored as the ABCA/Baseball America Assistant Coach of the Year.

Lemonis graduated from The Citadel in 1992 and was twice named to the All-Southern Conference team. He then spent 12 seasons on the coaching staff at his alma mater, helping the Bulldogs reach five NCAA tournaments.
