Day out as Gorman baseball coach


Bishop Gorman will have a new baseball coach for next season.

The school announced that Gino DiMaria will replace Nick Day as head coach.

Day said he resiged as math teacher at the school two weeks ago, and on Wednesday, the school relieved him of his coaching duties.

Day posted a 133-23-1 record in four seasons leading the Gaels. He guided Gorman to state titles in his first two years as the team’s coach, and the Gaels finished the 2012 season ranked No. 1 in the nation by USA Today.

Day was named USA Today Coach of the Year that season.

After the school had won seven consecutive state championships, Gorman lost to Coronado in the 2013 state final, then lost to Centennial in the Sunset Region tournament this spring and failed to make state.

DiMaria is in his 18th year as a faculty member or coach at Gorman, and has been a fixture coaching summer baseball in Las Vegas.

He guided the Las Vegas Mayhem to the Connie Mack state title this summer.
