MONTICELLO, Ark. (AP) - The new baseball coach at the University
of Arkansas at Monticello is familiar with the program, since the
Henderson State team he has led for the past six years has played
the Boll Weevils several times each season in Gulf South Conference
Arkansas-Monticello athletic director Chris Ratcliff announced
on Wednesday that John Harvey had been hired to coach the Weevils.
Under his tutelage, the Reddies set a single-season record for
wins with 34 in 2009.
Before joining the HSU program as an assistant, Harvey was an
assistant coach at Itawamba Community College. As a college player,
Harvey was a four-year letter winner for the Lyon College Scots.
He is a native of Lufkin, Texas.
