STARKVILLE, Miss. – Andy Cannizaro was officially introduced as Mississippi State’s new head baseball coach during a press conference Monday afternoon. Cannizaro replaces John Cohen, who was named MSU’s 17th Director of Athletics on Friday.
On Saturday, Cannizaro was named Cohen’s successor, as the former Major Leaguer, pro scout and Southeastern Conference assistant coach comes to MSU with a lifetime of baseball experience and high praise at all ranks of baseball from around the country.
Cannizaro will coach his second fall scrimmage as the Diamond Dawg skipper on Wednesday, with the time still to be determined and will be announced on social media when it is decided.
