NJ baseball coach resigns after 17 seasons and one state championship

St. John Vianney will be looking for a new baseball coach for the first time in nearly two decades.

Mike Morgan, who has been the Lancers’ head coach since 2007, has parted ways with St. John Vianney, according to a press release from the school.

In 2014, Morgan led St. John Vianney to the NJSIAA Non-Public A state championship over St. Joseph (Mont.) as part of a 20-7 season.

“SJV thanks (Morgan) for his many years of service and wishes him well in his future endeavors. SJV Administration is now beginning a search for a new head coach,” St. John Vianney Athletic Director Richard Lamberson said in a statement.

The St. John Vianney baseball team has a 146-134-1 record since 2011.

But Morgan doesn’t plan on stepping away from baseball. He hopes to continue coaching elsewhere at some level.

“I still love the game and I still love coaching. This is not the end for me by any means,” Morgan told NJ Advance Media.

St. John Vianney is 6-16 over the last two seasons.
