SEATTLE - University of Washington assistant baseball coach Donny Harrel has been hired as the head coach at Seattle University, which is bringing back baseball as a varsity sport.

Before coming to the UW, Harrel was a volunteer assistant at Oregon State from 2003-04.

He was the head coach for seven seasons at Lane Community College in Eugene, Ore., where he compiled a 220-90 record and led the team to the Northwest community college championship in 1999. An Oregon native, Harrel played three seasons in the Kansas City Royals farm system.

Last fall, Seattle U. announced its decision to reinstate baseball as a varsity sport, planning to field a team in fall 2009.
