Dick Cooke, the longtime Davidson baseball coach whose Wildcats went on a remarkable postseason run in 2017, has decided to step down after one final season. Cooke told the Observer in an exclusive interview that he will stop coaching and instead become an associate athletic director for Davidson this summer, just after he completes what will be his 28th season coaching the Wildcats. He broke that news to his players Monday. The school plans to announce the move soon. Cooke’s successor is already in place. Rucker Taylor, the team’s lead assistant, will be promoted to Davidson’s head coach after this season, Cooke said. – SCOTT FOWLER, charlotteobserver.comRead More
