Josh Elander

As we reported last month, Josh Elander is heading to Tennessee. The official release was put out last night. He will be a full-time assistant for the Vols and serve as hitting coach and recruiting coordinator.

Congratulations to Josh, and best wishes to him. This is a big jump in his career - one he appears to be ready for.

And, thanks to him for his contributions to our program this season.

Good luck Josh! I enjoyed watching him this past season. When the opposing team changed pitchers, the next few batters in the order would huddle around Elander as the produced the scouting report from his hip pocket. I’ve never seen that before from a volunteer coach.

As Dave Van Horn said, Josh is advanced as a coach beyond his years. He’ll do well.
