    NU alumnus and current assistant coach Mike Glavine will succeed Neil McPhee as Northeastern baseball head coach following the 2014 season.

    AD Peter Roby announced on Sept. 23 that McPhee will retire following the 2014 season, his 29th, bringing to a close the longest head-coaching tenure in Northeastern Athletics history.

    Glavine will become just the fourth baseball head coach at NU in the last 59 years and the 11th since the program's began in 1921.

    The NU baseball program includes a 26-year tenure by the late John "Tinker" Connelly (1956-81) and McPhee's 29-year run (1986-2014).

    Glavine played four years at NU from 1992 to 1995 and is one of the best hitters in Huskies history. He played 1B and finished his NU career with 28 HR's and 110 RBI, which placed him third and ninth, respectively, in the school's all-time record books.

    He is the younger brother of Atlanta Braves and NY Mets pitcher Tom Glavine. In 2003, he was called up to the major leagues by the Mets for the final month of the season -- where he played alongside his brother, Tom, and became just the third Husky to reach the majors.
