WEATHERFORD, Okla. (AP) Veteran western Oklahoma baseball coach Charles Teasley said Wednesday he plans to retire as Southwestern Oklahoma State's coach at the end of the season.

The 57-year-old Teasley has won more than 750 games in a career that includes stops at Yukon and Weatherford high schools as well as Southwestern, which is a member of the NCAA Division II Lone Star Conference.

He won state prep championships at Yukon in 1982 and at Weatherford in 1995 and 1998 and went 605-280 as a high school coach.

Teasley has a 162-190 record since arriving at Southwestern in 2000. The Bulldogs are 4- 20 this season.

Teasley says he's thought about retirement for several months.

Southwestern athletic director Cecil Perkins says Teasley's decision is unexpected and that Teasley has done a fine job as the Bulldogs' coach.
