Dietrich turns down MSU coaching offer


Daily Journal

Mississippi State's John Cohen is back on the hunt for a pitching coach.

Cohen flew in Cal State Fullerton pitching coach Jason Dietrich over the weekend and offered him the job, but according to Kendall Rogers of, Dietrich has turned down the opportunity.

Dietrich was the Bulldogs' top choice to replace Butch Thompson, who left to become Auburn's head coach last Thursday. Dietrich has been the Titans pitching coach for the past three seasons.

Cohen tweeted after Thompson's departure, “One of Nation's Elite Pitching Coaches will be joining our program soon.”
