Fri., June 18: After leading the Volunteers to the College World Series, Tennessee head coach Tony Vitello has been named the 2021 Mike Martin National Coach of the Year. Vitello led his Tennessee club to Omaha for the first time since 2005, while reaching the 50-win mark for the first time since 1995. The Volunteers earned a No. 3 national seed, hosted an NCAA Regional for the first time since 2005 and swept their regional with a win over Wright State in the opener before capping the perfect weekend with a pair of wins over Liberty to earn a spot in the Super Regionals. Tennessee stayed hot with a Super Regional sweep over No. 14 LSU. Vitello, in his fourth season in Knoxville, has guided the Volunteers to a 50-16 record this year.
