Trevecca baseball coach Chris Collins is expected to announce he's stepping down today.

Collins guided the Trojans to the TranSouth Conference regular season championship last season and had an 81-34-1 record in his two years as head coach at TNU.

He was an assistant coach for four seasons at TNU under coach Jeff Forehand, who is the current head coach at Lipscomb. Forehand led the Bisons to their first ever NCAA Tournament appearance this spring. There is speculation that Collins could move to become an assistant at Lipscomb.

NEW WEBSITE: TNU launched a revamped athletics website on Monday and announced it is partnering with SIDHelp on the new site.

In all SIDHelp is working with 20 conference athletic websites (including powering the TranSouth Conference website) and 22 universities.

"This re-launch of the TNU athletic website is an exciting step for us," said Brenda Patterson, TNU’s Director of Athletics. "The website is informative and easy to navigate. For TNU fans, alums, student-athletes, and the media, our new website will be one-stop shopping. Our new website will better showcase our intercollegiate athletic programs and our student-athletes; it will serve as a tremendous recruiting tool for prospective student-athletes."
