“I couldn’t be happier for Pete Hughes and his family. He sacrificed a lot to join our program and made a huge impact here at Georgia. Kansas State is getting one heck of a baseball coach and a better person. They are getting a coach that will work tirelessly with their players on and off the field and will help bring the Wildcat baseball program back to prominence."
-Scott Stricklin, Georgia head baseball coach
 
“I have known Pete Hughes since he was the coach at Boston College and I was at Notre Dame. During that time, I grew to respect Pete as an outstanding coach, competitor, and molder of young men. His teams have always played with great passion and energy. The players at Kansas State will be taught to play the game the right way and will represent the university with great class – because Pete will demand nothing less. He is a tireless worker in recruiting as well as working with the players on the field. He will not stop until the job is done.”
