Former Alabama pitching coach Kyle Bunn was hired as the new pitching coach at East Tennessee State. Bunn resigned abruptly from Alabama in December 2010, citing personal reasons for leaving the Crimson Tide program. Before working at Alabama, he had coaching stints at Clemson, Ole Miss, and Jefferson Davis Community College.
In a statement to CBD, Bunn stated “I am very excited about the opportunity and our coaching staff. I am also looking forward to the days ahead.”
We should see how this affects the ETSU pitching staff which last year was eight best in the Atlantic Sun conference at 5.16 ERA. This is the second assistant coach that has been hired this offseason by ETSU as former Louisville assistant coach Xan Barksdale joined the coaching staff last week.
