The University of West Georgia welcomed a new head coach for its Wolves baseball team this week.
It was homecoming week for Skip Fite as the West Georgia Wolves’ new head baseball coach met fans, students, faculty and staff in The Coliseum.
“I’m really excited and eager to get this thing going,” said Fite to the assembled group. “We have a lot of work to do, but I believe in the direction of this athletic program and can’t wait to get started.
Fite, 53, joins West Georgia after serving 25 seasons as head coach at Augusta State University. He replaces former coach David “Doc” Fowlkes, who resigned in May following19 seasons as head coach.
Daryl Dickey, UWG’s interim athletic director, introduced Fite as “a special person, at a special time for our athletic program and our university.”
Fite will immediately begin his duties at UWG and put together a staff, contact returning players and rekindle the winning Wolves baseball tradition.
