PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) — Washington State has fired baseball coach Marty Lees after four disappointing seasons.

Athletic director Pat Chun said Tuesday that Washington State needs to find someone to return the program to a place of prominence.

In his four years guiding the Cougars, Lees compiled a 70-137-2 record, including 32-83-2 in Pac-12 play.

A national search for a new baseball coach will begin immediately.

Associate head coach Dan Spencer will lead the team for this weekend's series against Arizona.
