Notre Dame parted ways with baseball coach Dave Schrage, the university announced Monday.
Schrage was fired after the Irish posted their first losing record since 1987, going 22-32, and failing to make the eight-team Big East tournament for the first time since Notre Dame joined the conference in 1996.
"Like Dave and his staff and his players, we all would have liked to have enjoyed more success, but it certainly wasn't for lack of effort or commitment," Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick said in a statement.
"I will begin today to work with (senior assistant athletics director and baseball administrator) Josh Berlo to conduct a national search for our next baseball coach."
Schrage went 119-104-1 in four seasons. The Irish never reached the NCAA tournament or won more than 36 games under Schrage, who replaced Paul Mainieri.
Mainieri guided Notre Dame to 11 40-win season and nine NCAA appearances, reaching the 2002 College World Series, before leaving to take over LSU in 2006.
Schrage is 595-657-1 in 23 college seasons, with coaching stops at Northern Iowa (1991-99), Northern Illinois (2000-02) and Evansville (2003-06).
