OFFICIAL: Head coach Pete Hughes tabs Jamie Pinzino as pitching coach http://t.co/RFdKmgLMk3— Oklahoma Baseball (@OU_Baseball) December 3, 2013
As first reported by Kendall Rogers of Perfect Game, Oklahoma has tabbed William & Mary head coach Jamie Pinzino as their new pitching coach.
The opening on new OU head coach Pete Hughes' staff was created following the departure of Jack Giese, who served as the pitching coach under former skipper Sunny Golloway, in early November.
Early indications are that Pinzino is a quality hire and comes from a similar background as Hughes with their respective ties to the east coast.
Here is a link to Pinzino's bio from William & Mary where he had just finished his first season as the Tribe's head coach after previously serving as their pitching coach a year earlier.
An official announcement from the University of Oklahoma is expected to come this week and possibly as early as Tuesday.
