Nate Yeskie has decided to leave the Oregon State Baseball program. Three National Championships and a ton of success developing young arms, Yeskie was a finalist for the OSU head coaching job once Pat Casey said for certain he wasn't coming back. However, the Beavers selected Mitch Canham to guide the team. Kendall Rogers of @d1baseball.com broke the story on twitter Monday night:
COACHING SCOOP: In a move certain to create buzz on the West Coast, @ArizonaBaseball has hired @BeaverBaseball’s Nate Yeskie as its Associate Head Coach/Pitching Coach, sources tell @d1baseball. Yeskie spent the last 11 years w/ the #Beavs and gives UofA a shot in the arm. #Pac12
