USC announced Wednesday it fired baseball coach Frank Cruz for violating NCAA rules for the number of hours players are allowed to practice directed by or supervised by the coaching staff.
Pitching coach Dan Hubbs, a former USC All-American pitcher, was named baseball coach.
"Adhering to all NCAA rules is paramount for each one of our coaches, student-athletes and staff members," athletic director Pat Haden said in a statement. "Those who knowingly break NCAA rules are subject to termination."
USC announced a self-imposed reduction in practice hours for the next two seasons.
Cruz replaced Chad Kreuter, who was fired by Haden in 2010. Cruz had a 48-63 overall record the past two seasons.
"I'm confident that Dan Hubbs and his staff will lead our team to a successful season," Haden said. "Dan is a good coach, he is highly-regarded in the baseball community and he has strong Trojan roots."
