Baggett returns for his second season as the Rider University head basketball coach, though the 2013-14 season is the eighth for Baggett as a member of the Rider staff, serving two as an assistant coach and four as an associate head coach.
Baggett has coached on the Division I level for 17 years and has been on the Rider staff since the 2006-2007 season.
He guided the 2012-13 Broncs to a 19-win season, the most by a Rider rookie head coach since Bob Greenwood led Rider to a 20-win season in 1962-63. The only other Rider basketball coach to compile 19 wins in his rookie campaign was the legendary Clair Bee.
