2015 National Assistant Coach of the Year Brad Bohannon has left his job at UK to take the same position at Auburn. Bohannon had been with Kentucky for 12 years and was part of the first SEC Championship in school history. Auburn recently hired Butch Thompson of Mississippi State as their new head coach. The Bohannon hire is a high-profile move for Thompson and the up and coming Auburn program heading into 2016.
“Brad Bohannon has been a tremendous Kentucky Wildcat for the last 12 years. His dedication and commitment to the Kentucky Baseball program has been relentless. Brad and I began our relationship more than 13 years ago and I am thankful for his personal and professional contributions to our collective success. While I am sad to be losing a very close friend I feel extremely fortunate for the time we’ve spent together and will watch Brad’s career with a keen interest moving forward. Brad’s contributions will extend well beyond his time in Lexington and he will always be a part of our family.”– Gary Henderson
Kentucky will begin a search for a new recruiting coordinator and infield coach immediately. Best of luck, Brad.
