Gary Henderson Biography
University of Kentucky Wildcats head coach Gary Henderson began his baseball career as a star player in high school. He pitched one year at Linfield College then transferred to San Diego State University and compiled a 19-5 overall record at both schools.
Following his playing career, Henderson was hired as a junior varsity assistant by his alma mater in 1988. Henderson would remain as assistant in varying capacities for the majority of his career. Following a year at San Diego State, Henderson was hired as an assistant by Cal State Fullerton (1989), Riverside CC (1990), Chapman (1991-3), Pepperdine (1994), Florida (1995-1998; where he won the NCAA Assistant Coach of the Year award), Oregon State (1999-2002), and Kentucky (2002-2009). In recognition of his two decades of work as a competent assistant, Kentucky finally gave him the chance to be a head coach, and revive their struggling program, in 2009-10.
Henderson’s first year at Kentucky was mediocre; he went 21-18 overall with a 6-12 record in the SEC. However, he has received strong marks for his team coaching and recruitment so look for the team to improve somewhat in the next few seasons.
