At a retirement press conference, Coach Raymond said, This was a very difficult decision for me.
He served as Blue Hen baseball coach for nine years and compiled the second best coaching record in the history of the sport at UD with a mark of 141-56.
Six of Raymond's nine baseball teams qualified for the NCAA District II playoffs.
Possibly more than any other coach, Tubby helped shape UD Athletics into the excellent program it is today, one that reflects his dedication to teamwork, focus and achievement both on and off the field.
We celebrate his lifetime of accomplishment and his abiding commitment to the University. A native of Flint, Mich., Raymond played football and baseball at the University of Michigan, began his coaching career right out of college, and came to Delaware in 1954 as head baseball coach and assistant football coach under the legendary David Nelson.
Tubby was a great leader, a wise mentor and a generous contributor to his community.
Raymond was cited in 19, when he coached Delaware to back-to-back national titles.
