The Alabama A&M athletic department has announced that head baseball coach Mitch Hill has stepped down after five seasons with the Bulldogs. The baseball program recently completed its 2018 campaign going 12-37.
The athletic department released a statement thanking Coach Hill for his commitment to the Alabama A&M baseball program and wised him much success on his future endeavors. “Hill brought energy and effort and his passion for the program and its student-athletes over the last five season was evident and commendable and we wish him well.”
In 2015, Hill helped lead Alabama A&M to a 26-30 record, the best season under his helm. He also led the team to four SWAC Conference tournaments from 2014 to 2017.
One of Hill’s former Alabama A&M players, pitcher Brandon Marsonek, signed a free agent contact after the 2017 MLB Draft with the Oakland Athletics.
A search for a new head baseball coach will begin immediately with a possible candidate being former Stillman College head coach and current Eastern Kentucky University assistant, Julius McDougal.
