PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) — Marty Lees is the new baseball coach at Washington State.
Athletic director Bill Moos made the announcement Wednesday.
Lees, who graduated from Lakeview High School, replaces the fired Donnie Marbut and is the 15th head coach in program history.
He spent the past three seasons as an assistant coach at Oklahoma State, and the previous 11 at Oregon State.
In those 14 years, he has coached 10 teams that have reached the NCAA tournament, including two national champions with Oregon State (in 2006 and 2007).
Oregon State was among the nation's best defensive teams when Lees was a coach there, including a school record .977 fielding percentage in 2007, and that ranked No. 2 among all NCAA Division I programs that season.
He spent 11 seasons with the Beavers before he joined the Oklahoma State staff in June 2012.
Lee graduated from Western Oregon University in 1994 with a degree in physical education. He and his wife, Kristy, have three sons, Brandon, Brady and Jacob.
