STATE COLLEGE – Penn State baseball coach Robbie Wine resigned on Tuesday.

“I have decided to step down as the Penn State head baseball coach to pursue other opportunities in the sport of baseball,” Wine said. “I am excited to start a new chapter in my life and look forward to what lies ahead. My experience at Penn State has made me a better coach and person.”
