Dave Fuller remains the winningest baseball coach in University of Florida history. Fuller guided the Gator baseball program from 1948-75, producing a record of 557-354-6 and SEC Championships in 1952, 1956 and 1962, and he was selected as SEC Coach of the Year all three years. His clubs also won four Eastern Division titles, and played in four NCAA Regional tournaments.

Fuller was also a member of the Gator football coaching staff for 29 years (1948-76), the longest run of any assistant coach in UF history. Fuller served in many capacities as head freshman coach, varsity assistant, head scout and a key recruiter.

Fuller's baseball teams produced 47 first-team All-SEC players, and All-Americans Bernie Parrish (1958), Perry McGriff (1959-1960) and Tom Moore (1962-1963). Seven of his players went on to play in the Major Leagues, including Dennis Aust, Doug Corbett, William Graham, Roger Holt, Haywood Sullivan, Dale Willis and Kendall Wise.
