Baseball: Josh Bobbitt Returning to Rider

Rider pitching coach Josh Bobbitt announced a few weeks ago that he was leaving after this season to take over at City View, but things have changed since then.

With long-time head coach Scot Green stepping down after last week's state tournament, Bobbitt is heading back to Rider to take over as the head coach of Raiders.

Bobbitt has coached at Rider for eight years, serving the last seven as assistant head coach and pitching coach, under Green.

As for City View, they're starting their search over again. Stay with Newschannel 6 and we'll let you know when they have a new finalist in place.
