Brigham Young has named alumnus Mike Littlewood, the head coach at Division II Dixie (Utah) State, as its new head coach, replacing Vance Law.
Littlewood, whose son Marcus was a 2010 second-round pick of the Seattle Mariners, posted a .702 winning percentage in 16 seasons at Dixie State, as the program moved up from junior college to NCAA Division II. Dixie State won the 2004 NJCAA World Series under his guidance.
Littlewood played third base at BYU from 1985-88 and was an all-Western Athletic Conference choice in 1988. He takes over a Cougars program that has moved into the West Coast Conference for all sports while BYU football plays as an independent. Brigham Young has not earned a spot in the NCAA tournament since 2002.
