May 10, 2013 – Hillsdale College baseball coach Paul Noce has stepped down from his position. He had been the longest-tenured current head coach of the Chargers at the time of his departure.
Hillsdale College Athletic Director Don Brubacher said a search for a new coach would begin immediately, and thanked Noce for his many years of service.
"In his 20 years at the college, Paul led his program with dignity and the highest degree of character," Brubacher said. Noce took over the baseball program prior to the start of the 1994 season.
In his career, Noce had an overall record of 349-548-1, easily making him the winningest coach in Charger baseball history. He led Hillsdale to the 2003 GLIAC Tournament, and in 2013, took the program to its first 20-win season since 2005. Noce concluded his coaching tenure with the Chargers on a four-game winning streak.
Prior to his appointment at Hillsdale, Noce served as a roving instructor in the Pittsburgh Pirates' minor league system. He played professional baseball for the San Diego Padres, Chicago Cubs, and the Cincinnati Reds, including in when the Reds won the World Series.
