Pearl River Community College Searching For New Baseball Coach

Pearl River Community College is accepting applications for the Wildcats head baseball coaching position, seeking a replacement for Coach Jim Nightengale, who will not return next season. In 14 years at the helm of the Wildcats, Nightengale compiled a 340-311 record. His 2001 team posted a 21 and 24 won-loss work sheet. Nightengale guided the Wildcats into post-season play eight times and finished number two in the state in 1989, 1991 and 1994.

PRCC President William Lewis said applications will be accepted until May 18. A search committee, made up of faculty, students and representatives from throughout Pearl River's six-county district, will then review the applications and schedule interviews.

"This is a very visible position at this institution and we plan to screen each applicant carefully before beginning the interviews," said Lewis. He hopes to have a recommendation in time for the June meeting of the school's Board of Trustees. "It's time for us to move forward and find a replacement so that person can assemble his coaching staff and begin the recruiting process," said Lewis.

Lewis believes PRCC will receive a quality list of applicants because of the six-county district's reputation for athletic excellence on the baseball field. As far as qualifications for candidates, a master's degree is required.

Send letter of interest, application, resume-transcripts and three letters of reference to: Head Baseball Coach Search Committee, Pearl River Community College., P.O. Box 5090, Poplarville, MS 39470.
