USC announced on Tuesday morning that it had re-signed head baseball coach Dan Hubbs to a multi-year contract.

After taking over in 2013, Hubbs has turned around a struggling Trojan team rather quickly. In his second season as coach, the Trojans finished 29-24, just missing the playoffs. The 2015 season ended up being the Trojans best since 2001, as the team finished 39-17, losing to eventual champions, Virginia, in the regional final.

Athletic Director Pat Haden has nothing but confidence in Hubbs via usctrojans.com.

"Dan Hubbs has proven over the last three years that he is the right coach and person to lead USC baseball back to prominence. Taking over a program in need, Dan has quickly led us back to post-season play, while also guiding the team to success in the classroom and in the community. He understands the expectations in front of him, and I could not be more excited to announce an extension of his contract." - Pat Haden

Hubbs was a Trojan himself, donning the cardinal and gold from 1991-93. Hubbs posted a career 19-13 record as a Trojan and currently sits fourth on the Trojans career saves list. After graduating from USC, Hubbs played in the minor leagues for several years.

The Trojans have had 10 pitchers drafted into the MLB during Hubb's reign at the helm. Last season, the Trojans posted seven shut-outs, good for 11th best in the nation. Hubbs also had four Trojans named to the All-PAC 12 first team last year.

Before rejoining the Trojans in 2012, Hubbs experienced tremendous success during his tenure at CAL, helping lead them to to the 2011 College World Series, their first appearance since 1992.
