Premier Assistants: Best Of The RestAnalysis
As is the case each season, several assistant coaches made their mark throughout the 2018 campaign. Washington pitching coach and assistant Jason Kelly helped recruit and mold many important players on this year’s UW team — the first Omaha club in school history, but he’s certainly not alone despite being our 2018 Assistant of the Year.
What other assistants were kings of their craft in 2018? Let’s dissect them:
Nate Thompson, Arkansas
Thompson earned a strong reputation during his time at Missouri State and continued his successful ways with the Razorbacks this past season. Arkansas had one of the nation’s premier offensive lineups with Thompson leading the charge and he’s made an impact on the recruiting trail. He’s one of the hot names in college baseball for a reason.
