Arizona State names Tim Esmay Interim Head Coach

TimEsmay Arizona State announced today that Tim Esmay will serve as the Sun Devils baseball coach for the 2010 season. Esmay had spent the last five seasons as an assistant coach in Tempe including the last three seasons as the Assistant Head Coach. He was let go after last season’s trip to the College World Series as Murphy decided to bring in some new blood to the coaching staff. Esmay has experience as a head coach directing the Utah program from 1997-2004. He accumulated a 213-235-1 record including a WAC title in the 1997 season. This move is a little bit of a surprise as I expected former Washington coach Ken Knutson to get the job for this season.
