Greg Goff (born September 24, 1970) is an American college baseball coach and former pitcher. He is the head baseball coach at Purdue University. Goff played college baseball at Jackson State Community College from 1990 to 1991 and Delta State University from 1992 to 1993. He served as the head coach at the University of Montevallo from 2004 to 2007, Campbell University from 2008 to 2014, Louisiana Tech University from 2015 to 2016 and the University of Alabama in 2017.

Coaching career[edit]

Goff was hired as the head coach of the Alabama Crimson Tide baseball team on June 17, 2016.[1] Goff least the Crimson Tide to a 19–34–1 season before being fired for possibly seeking to revoke some scholarships of players in violation of NCAA rules.[2][3]

Goff was hired by Mark Wasikowski to join the Purdue Boilermakers baseball staff as a volunteer assistant.[4] Because Goff accepted a volunteer position, Alabama still had to pay his salary over the length of his contract.[5] On June 13, 2019, just two days after Wasikowski left to become the head coach at Oregon, Goff was promoted to head coach.[6]
