SDSU: Gwynn to remain head baseball coach at least one more year

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Baseball Hall of Fame member Tony Gwynn will remain the head baseball coach at San Diego State University for at least one more year, despite ongoing health issues, the school announced Wednesday.

Gwynn missed the second half of the recently completed season, in which the Aztecs won the Mountain West Tournament and advanced to the NCAA Regionals, while he dealt with his health problems.

The former Padres right-fielder has undergone surgery for cancer in a salivary gland and his cheek in the last four years. His alma mater, where he has coached for a dozen years, has not specified the nature of his latest health problems.

Mark Martinez, who led the team while Gwynn was away, was promoted from associate head coach to executive head coach and signed through the 2017 season, according to SDSU.
