Eight days after Butch Thompson left High Point to become an assistant at Mississippi State, the Panthers finally found their man. High Point hired Craig Cozart, who spent the last 12 years at Central Florida, to be its head coach. Cozart was an assistant under Jay Bergman and moved up to interim head coach when Bergman was fired this spring.
"During his coaching career, he has proven to be an outstanding recruiter and has also demonstrated a strong ability to develop players," High Point athletic director Craig Keilitz said in a statement. "I truly believe that things happen for a reason, and I could not be more excited about the direction of our baseball program under Coach Cozart."
In other news, Florida Atlantic has scheduled a press conference for Tuesday to announce a replacement for retiring head coach Kevin Cooney. The Owls are expected to elevate long-time assistant John McCormack to the head job. McCormack is FAU’s associate head coach and recruiting coordinator and has served on Cooney’s staff for 17 years.
