BLOG: According to an Ole Miss spokesman hitting coach Matt Mossberg has resigned to “pursue other opportunities.”
“I’d like to thank Coach (Mike) Bianco for the opportunity he has given me,” Mossberg said in a statement. “The time I’ve spent at Ole Miss as both a player and a coach are special to me and I appreciate having been a part of them. I’ve learned so much in my time on this staff, and I’m proud of all we accomplished. However, I’m ready for a new challenge and am excited about the next opportunity ahead of me.”
Mossberg has served as an assistant on the team for the past four years and was a player from 2000-2003.
After joining the staff in 2007 as the Director of Operations, and then transitioning into a volunteer assistant during the 2008/2009 seasons, Mossberg took over as hitting coach prior to the 2010 season. (June 6, 2011)
