Shortly after news broke that Mississippi State baseball assistant Nick Mingione will take the head coaching job at Kentucky, it now looks like State's pitching coach, Wes Johnson, will take the pitching coach position at Arkansas.
This rumor has been swirling for days now, and Wes Johnson's official Twitter account from the MSU athletic department is no longer in existence.
A quick check of Twitter shows that Wes Johnson has deleted his @MSUCommandVelo account. Looks like another MSU assistant is gone.— Bulldog Sports Radio (@BulldogsRadio) June 15, 2016
Johnson is an Arkansas native and coached in the Arkansas high school ranks as an assistant and head coach before becoming an assistant at both Southern Arkansas and Central Arkansas. He then spent time at Dallas Baptist before coming to Mississippi State.
