Pat Casey (born 1959) is the head coach for the Oregon State Beavers baseball team. He is best known for winning the 2006 College World Series for the Beavers' first-ever baseball National Championship. The following year, despite losing all but two starters on the team and being the final team selected in the NCAA College World Series bracket, he led the Beavers to a repeat championship in the 2007 College World Series, the first unranked team in history to accomplish this feat.
After his playing career ended, Casey became head baseball coach at George Fox University, where he earned his undergraduate degree in 1990, also playing basketball for the school while coaching baseball. In seven seasons at George Fox, his baseball team compiled a 171-113-1 record.
In 1995, he was named head coach at Oregon State, where through the 2013 season, he had compiled at 670-389-4 record. Casey focused on recruiting players from the Pacific Northwest. He has guided the Beavers to three straight 45+ win seasons, including back-to-back Pac-10 championships, four trips to the College World Series, and two national championships. He is the only coach in NCAA history to lead a team to the National Championship after playing in six elimination games. After winning the 2006 national championship, the program received its first ever number 1 ranking by all four college baseball polls. He was named the Pac-12 Coach of the year in 2005, 2006, 2011, and 2013, and was named Baseball America Coach of the Year in 2006.
