Serrano left the Volunteers program after six seasons in charge. He was unable to change the course of a historically poor-performing team.
During Serrano’s tenure, Tennessee finished below .500 in SEC play every season and never made the NCAA Tournament.
He chose the Mountaineers over historic college baseball power Arizona State. West Virginia finished the 2017 season 36-26 overall and 12-12 in the Big 12.
