Sept. 27 (Bloomberg) -- Bill Decker is leaving Trinity College after 22 seasons to become head coach of the Harvard University baseball team, Harvard Director of Athletics Bob Scalise said in a news release.

Decker succeeds Joe Walsh, who died July 31 after 17 years as coach of the Cambridge, Massachusetts-based team. The Crimson were 12-30 last year.

Decker is Trinity’s winningest coach with a 529-231 record that includes five conference championships, nine National Collegiate Athletic Association tournament appearances and one national championship.

“I step away from that program knowing it’s healthy and knowing that I can share a similar situation with the wonderful people at Harvard,” Decker said.

Decker led Trinity, of Hartford, Connecticut, to a 45-1 mark that resulted in the school’s first NCAA Division III national title in 2008. Last season, the Bantams were 34-11.
