SIOUX CITY – Boyd Pitkin has announced his resignation as the Briar Cliff head baseball coach. Pitkin recently completed his 22nd season at the helm for the Chargers.

Coach Pitkin amassed more than 500 wins with Briar Cliff, including three GPAC championships and a berth in the NAIA World Series in 2005. He is the all-time leader in wins as a head coach for the Chargers and his teams have won 208 conference games since joining the GPAC in 2003.
“We are very appreciative of the energy and leadership Boyd poured into this program for the past three decades and we wish him and his family all the best,” said Briar Cliff Interim Director of Athletics Jared Bodammer.
Briar Cliff will immediately begin the search for its next head baseball coach.
