Randy Bush played only one year, 1979, at UNO, but established a school single-season record with eight triples and was an All-Sun Belt selection. He also batted .369 that season and led the team with 18 home runs, 77 RBI, 155 total bases and a .764 slugging percentage. The Privateers went 49-14 that season – the second-highest winning percentage in school history – won the Sun Belt championship and qualified for the NCAA playoffs.
Returning to the Lakefront, Bush spent five years as head coach from 2000 through 2004, compiling a 144-145 record. During his tenure, Bush led UNO to a Sun Belt Conference title in 2000 and an appearance in the NCAA South II Regional in Baton Rouge.
