CHICAGO -- Iowa Athletics Director Gary Barta won't discuss the future of Iowa baseball coach Jack Dahm until the season is completed.

Dahm, who is in his 10th season as head coach, has compiled a 232-302 record. He has two winning seasons in his tenure: 31-23 (2007) and 30-28 (2010).

"I think my common response, and I don’t mean to be boilerplate, is the way I go about it is I observe daily and evaluate annually," Barta said Tuesday at the Big Ten meetings at the Sofitel Hotel. "So we have another series left and at the end of the year we’ll sit down like I do every year with each coach and talk about what the next step is."

Iowa currently is ninth place at 19-27 with a 7-14 Big Ten record. The Hawkeyes close out this weekend with a three-game series at Purdue.

"Anytime, any of our programs isn’t in the top half or competing for championships I have concern," Barta said. "Again, we really aren’t going to talk about it until the season’s over."
