Blog – Report: Wells to leave MSU, head to La. Tech



Perfect Game’s Kendall Rogers reported on Tuesday that Mississippi State coordinator of baseball camps Jake Wells will become an assistant coach at Louisiana Tech.

A team spokesperson confirmed that Wells will be leaving the Bulldog program, but Louisiana Tech won’t make the hire official until July 1.

Wells also coached first base during his two seasons with MSU. He was an integral part of the Bulldogs’ run to the College World Series national championship series last season in his first year under head coach John Cohen.

Before coming to MSU, Wells served five years on the coaching staff Marion Military Institute in Marion, Ala. In his last two seasons there he was the head coach.

“Coach Wells has done an incredible job at Marion Military Institute,” Cohen said when Wells was hired. “He has earned the respect of the baseball community with his work ethic, perseverance and his creativity. I believe he is one of the great young coaches in the country.”

Louisiana Tech hired former Campbell University coach Greg Goff as its new head coach earlier this month. Wells played for Goff at Division II program Montevallo in Alabama.
