NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Oklahoma head baseball coach Pete Hughes has named former Nebraska head coach Mike Anderson to the OU baseball staff.

Anderson's appointment was announced on Tuesday by the university. The school says Hughes is also retaining pitching coach Jack Giese and coordinator of baseball operations Ryan Gaines.

Anderson coached the Huskers for nine seasons from 2003-11, leading them to a College World Series appearance in 2005. He owns a 337-196-2 career record and led Nebraska to a 125-116-1 record in the Big 12 Conference, including regular season championships in 2003 and 2005 as well as Big 12 Coach of the Year awards in those two seasons. The Huskers added a Big 12 Tournament Championship at the conclusion of 2005.

Nebraska made the NCAA Tournament five teams in Anderson's first six seasons.
