Baron Leaves Posts at Georgia Tech -- April 20, 2005
ATLANTA, April 20. AFTER eight years in command of the men’s program at Georgia Tech, Seth Baron has resigned as head coach of the Yellow Jackets, citing the desire to pursue other professional opportunities. The announcement was made by Dave Braine, the school’s Athletic Director. Baron also stepped down as the women’s coach, which he guided since the program’s birth four years ago.
“My eight years at Georgia Tech have been fantastic,” Baron said. “I truly enjoyed the excitement of building the men’s and women’s programs and watching them begin to receive national recognition. I leave Georgia Tech knowing the hard work and dedication toward these programs has paid off. Georgia Tech will continue to add strength and depth to the success off ACC swimming and diving.”
A graduate of Auburn University, Baron compiled a dual-meet record of 45-44 with the men’s program and went 16-22 with the women. In his final season, Georgia Tech placed third in the men’s competition at the ACC Championships while the women finished sixth. The men placed 32nd at the NCAA Championships.
Georgia Tech announced it will immediately begin a search for Baron’s replacement.
