MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Former University of Tennessee pitching coach Fred Corral has been hired as the associate head coach and pitching coach for the University of Memphis baseball team, head coach Daron Schoenrock announced Monday. Corral replaces former Tiger pitching coach Michael Federico, who took the pitching coach job at Southern Miss in mid-July.
"While it is always difficult to replace an assistant coach with the loyalty, dedication, expertise and people skills that Coach Federico brought to the program, in his five years with us," said Schoenrock. "I feel we’ve really `hit a home run with the hiring of Fred Corral. Fred will have a huge impact on the pitching staff, the entire team and this program. Our pitchers will benefit from Fred’s experience, his teaching techniques and the person that he is. We are truly fortunate to have him at the University of Memphis."
