ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Erik Bakich has been hired as the new
baseball coach at Michigan.

The school announced the hiring Wednesday. Bakich spent the last
three seasons as the coach at Maryland. The Terrapins went 32-24 in
2012.

The 34-year-old Bakich is the youngest head baseball coach at
any BCS school. Prior to becoming the coach at Maryland, he was on
the staff at Vanderbilt.

Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon calls Bakich "one of
the top recruiters and developers of talent in collegiate
baseball."

Michigan was 22-34 in 2012. The Wolverines announced last month
that coach Rich Maloney would not return.
