It earned the distinction in a vote by the nation&rsquo;s coaches.<br />&bull; In 1999, Casey spearheaded the expansion of Goss Stadium from Coleman Field. The stadium saw increased seating, improved locker rooms and a full press box.<br />&bull; In 2009, Casey again spearheaded a further expansion of Goss Stadium.

And Oregon State became the first team to win the World Series despite losing two games in Omaha - once before taking 2-of-3 from North Carolina to claim the crown.
