Michigan pitching coach Bob Keller is out after six years with the Wolverines.
The move comes as a surprise, as Keller had success with Michigan and has a very good reputation in coaching circles. Sixteen Michigan pitchers have earned all-Big Ten honors and 10 have been drafted under Keller's tutelage. In that period, the Wolverines have won three Big Ten regular-season titles, two tournament titles, have been to four regionals and one super regional.
Michigan finished second in the standings this year, a game behind Minnesota, and tied for third in the league in ERA (5.22) and ranked second in strikeouts per nine innings (7.5).
Keller also had success in his three-year stint at Birmingham-Southern, where his staff ranked 29th in the nation in ERA (3.82) during a 47-win season and trip to regionals in 2004.
Don't expect Keller to remain unemployed for long.
