Ralph Grajeda has resigned after four seasons as Vanguard University baseball coach.

Grajeda, who said he would pursue another coaching job, was 98-95, 64-76 in the Golden State Athletic Conference. The Lions finished 2012 at 23-21.

The Lions missed the postseason the last two seasons.

"Vanguard University afforded me the opportunity to learn and grow as a head collegiate baseball coach in the toughest conference in the NAIA," Grajeda said in a statement. "I am eternally grateful."

Vanguard Athletic Director Bob Wilson praised Grajeda, a former assistant at Riverside Community College, as hard working and passionate.
