Fwiw, in the OWH article Childress said that he thinks Christy will make an excellent pitching coach.
But while Bolt leaves a void that’s yet to be filled in College Station, Childress said the same is true of Christy. The first base coach developed scouting reports, worked with catchers and handled on-campus recruiting.
Jeff Christy was a catcher at Nebraska and will be the pitching coach for the Huskers.
And though Christy has only officially been a pitching coach during his time at Central Oklahoma, he’s worked closely with Childress — who has a deserved reputation as one of the best pitching coaches in the country — as a player at Nebraska and the last two years at A&M. Christy called the pitches in a 1-0 shutout of eventual CWS qualifier Mississippi State last month when Childress was at his daughter’s graduation. He also took over after the head coach was ejected in a 3-2 win over Alabama.
“He’s more than equipped to be an amazing pitching coach at the University of Nebraska,” Childress said. “He’s going to do an amazing job.”
