Patterson's Wrenn retires as baseball coach

March 15, 2002|By Lem Satterfield

Roger Wrenn, Patterson's football coach and athletic director, has retired as the school's baseball coach after 27 seasons "for health reasons," he said yesterday. His replacement is former assistant Keith Robinson.

Wrenn, who will begin his 29th year as football coach in the fall, said he did not make his decision until Monday, after consulting with his doctor about being unable to shake flu-like symptoms, including of congestion and fatigue, that continued most of the winter.

"I'm not getting any younger, I guess, and I think I just need a break," said Wrenn, 55. "I'm still going to coach football, but I just have to slow down. "

Wrenn ends his baseball coaching career having won 13 championships.
