Arizona State hires Indiana’s Tracy Smith as coach

TEMPE, Ariz. – Tracy Smith, who led Indiana to back-to-back Big Ten championships and to the Hoosiers’ first College World Series appearance last year, has been hired as Arizona State’s head coach.

Athletic director Ray Anderson on Tuesday announced the hiring of Smith, who replaces Tim Esmay.

Smith, 48, was head coach for nine years at Indiana, where he won more than 40 games each of the past two seasons and led the Hoosiers to back-to-back Big Ten championships.

Arizona State was 33-24 overall this season and was third in the Pac-12 at 19-11. The school has won five national championships, fourth-most among all schools, but none since 1981. The Sun Devils’ last CWS appearance was in 2010.
