NEW ORLEANS (WTVA) - Former Mississippi State head baseball coach Andy Cannizaro has been hired to the same position at Holy Cross School, an independent, Catholic, college preparatory school in New Orleans.

Cannizaro resigned from MSU three games into the 2018 season for what he called "poor decisions." He led MSU to a Super Regional in 2017.


Cannizaro's father, Gary, is a 1972 graduate of Holy Cross School.

Cannizaro's hiring is not effective until June 1.
