12-year Husson University baseball coach Jason Harvey has stepped down from that job as well as his assistant athletics director duties.

The school issued this press release - "We are very sad that Jason will be leaving us," reflects Director of Athletics Frank Pergolizzi. "He has made a significant contribution to both the baseball program and the athletic department during his time at Husson. The young men who have had the opportunity to play for him are very fortunate. We wish him and his family the very best."

Harvey issued this statement - "It is with great sadness that I step away from Husson, but due to personal matters this is what is best for me and my family at this time. I want to thank the University, Athletics Staff, Coaches, current and former players for all they did for me during my time at Husson. I was blessed to coach alongside some great coaches who have made a great impact on my life to this day.  I was fortunate enough to coach a large group of fine young men during my time here at Husson and I am thankful that they gave me dedication, commitment and love to our baseball program. Husson is a great place with a lot of great people. The baseball program has been a second family to me, my wife and kids and it will truly be missed by all of us."

Harvey leaves the Eagles program as the winningest baseball coach with 284 wins.
