TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - TCPS head baseball coach Will Lowrey confirmed to WTVA sports director Jim Holder that he will be the next athletics director at Blue Mountain College.
Lowrey replaces Will Kollmeyer, who left BMC in August. Harvey Childers has been serving as interim AD.
Lowrey, who coached TCPS to the 2016 1A state baseball championship, is entering his eighth season as head coach of the Eagles.
Lowrey, 42, plans to coach TCPS in 2018, and will officially begin his duties at Blue Mountain College on June 1.
'Selfishly it was way more comfortable to stay at TCPS, said Lowrey. But we knew that God was calling us there (Blue Mountain).'
