Fort Hays State hires Steve Johnson away from Butler

STEVE JOHNSON

STEVE JOHNSON

Steve Johnson is leaving El Dorado for the WK.

Fort Hays State hired the Butler Community College baseball coach away from the Grizzlies today, and this seems like a great move for Johnson. He’s done what he needed to do (win, win, win some more) at BuCo to get an opportunity like this, so when said opportunity comes along you need to take it. He can win at FHSU, where they haven’t been able to achieve the same rare air they were breathing since Bob Fornelli left … but the FHSU administration seems to be willing to put $$$ behind the product it puts on the field. On the flip side, the MIAA is a tough nut to crack and he’s got his work cut out for him.

BJ McVay takes over at Butler, btw.

Here’s the full release from FHSU.
