David Perno is the former head baseball coach at the University of Georgia. In 11 seasons he compiled a record of 300–230–1 (.566) (124–127–1 SEC). He has led the program to five NCAA tournaments, including 3 of the last 8 College World Series. He was named the 2004 Coach of the Year by Baseball America. That same year, he won his first SEC championship. His 2006 team went 47–23, but the next year, however, they went 23–33. In 2008, his team did much better, going 45–25–1 (20–9–1 SEC) and won his second SEC championship. That one tie was at LSU due to an SEC travel curfew. He was named the SEC coach of the year and was the national runner-up to the Fresno State Bulldogs at the College World Series. He is a former player and assistant coach at Georgia. He was fired at the end of the 2013 season.
