Who is Larry Cochell?

Larry Cochell is a former baseball coach for the University of Oklahoma. His great career was overshadowed by his racial remarks in an interview before an ESPN2 telecast of the Oklahoma-Wichita State game. He used racial remarks to describe Oklahoma's freshman outfielder Joe Dunigan III. With the embarrassment, he decided to resign. He is most notable for leading the Sooners to a national championship at the 1994 College World Series.

He also served as the head coach at Cal-State Fullerton, Creighton, Oral Roberts University and Northwestern.
