ASU Coach Kessinger Will Not Renew Contract, Finished with A-State

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Arkansas State Head Baseball Coach Keith Kessinger will not return to Arkansas State next season. Kessinger was offered a one-year extension following the 2008 season, but has opted not to sign the deal.

"I have also been blessed with a remarkable group of players who represent themselves, our program, and our university with incredible class. I am certain that from the standpoint of facility improvements, fundraising, academics, and ticket sales that this program is in the best shape that it has been since I arrived six years ago. I believe that I am leaving the program better than it was in 2002. My family and I have loved our time in Jonesboro and will miss the many friends that we have made. I will always be an ASU fan."

After six seasons with Arkansas State, Coach Kessinger compiled a 151-178-1 record.
