Rider baseball Assistant Coach Josh Bobbitt will be the next head coach at City View High School, he announced Monday.
Bobbitt coached at Rider for the past eight years, focusing on the pitching staff and helping the Raiders win the 2011 4A State Championship.
Before that he was head coach at Olney for three years, making the playoffs each year.
He'll take over a City View program that has struggled for years in a tough district.
Before that though, he will finish out this season with Rider, who will play in the Region I-4A Semifinals this weekend against Canyon.
Note: We hoped to talk to Bobbitt on-camera Monday, but the severe weather across Texoma canceled Rider's baseball practice.
