Tommy Raffo staying as ASU head baseball coach

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Arkansas State has dodged a Blue Raider bullet. Tommy Raffo will return for his 5th season as the Red Wolves baseball coach.

Middle Tennessee offered Raffo the head coaching job on Monday. He interviewed for the opening last week in Murfreesboro.

Raffo held a meeting with his coaches this morning, and notified his players by text that he was staying at ASU.

He was named the Sun Belt Coach of the Year after leading the Red Wolves to the conference championship game. Their 34-23 mark in 2012 was one of the best seasons in school history.
