    The University of Tennessee announced on Wednesday that head baseball coach Dave Serrano will be stepping down at the conclusion of the season.

    Serrano is one of twelve coaches in NCAA history to take two different teams to the College World Series. In six seasons as UT’s head coach, Serrano’s teams went 157-160. The Vols have not finished above .500 in the SEC since Rod Delmonico led them to a 18-11 record in 2005.

    Here are some names to be on the lookout for to replace Serrano next season.

    1. Check out the resume of Mitch Thompson, Head Coach McLennan Junior College, Waco, TX. He has coaching experience in Southeastern and Big 12 Conferences and a pro scout for KC Royals; going to the World Series with Mississippi State, Auburn and Baylor. He has served as a hitting coach, defensive coordinator, lead recruiter and director of baseball options for D1 schools. In 2006, he earned ABCA/Baseball American National Assistant Coach of the Year.
      He went to MCC in 2014 and has turned that program around a short time frame. In 2015, MCC was National Champion runner-ups. In 2016, he was named North Tx Junior College Athletic Assoc. Coach of the Year. Last night, they qualified again for the Jr. College World Series. Many of his players have gone on to D1 and Power 5 schools.
      His players excel in the classroom and character. Furthermore, Mitch is a outstanding mentor and example to his players. Take a look!

    2. How about VFL Alan Cockrell, former QB and outfielder. On Vols All-Century team. Currently hitting coach for Yankees.
