Source: Lovelady to be next baseball coach at Wright State

Lovelady will replace Rob Cooper, who is reportedly going to be hired at Penn State. The Cooper news was still not official as of Friday morning. An official announcement on Lovelady will probably not come until Penn State announces the Cooper hiring.

Lovelady, like Cooper, is a graduate of the University of Miami. The Hurricanes won two national championships during Lovelady’s playing career. He was a captain and catcher in 2001 when they won the title.

Lovelady was on Cooper’s staff for all nine seasons he was the head coach, and Lovelady was the associated head coach for the last seven years.

Lovelady worked with pitchers and catchers for Wright State and was also the recruiting coordinator.
