Bianco named to Team USA staff
Ole Miss head baseball coach Mike Bianco will serve as the pitching coach for the USA Baseball Collegiate National Team, it was announced Tuesday.
The team will compete internationally this summer. It is the first time for the Bianco to serve as an assistant with the organization despite a long history between Bianco’s Rebels and USA Baseball. Seven Rebels have competed internationally with the USA National Team in the last 10 seasons.
Bianco joins Tim Esmay of Arizona State and Ed Servais of Creighton as assistant coaches on the staff for 2013. Esmay and Servais are both head coaches of their respective collegiate programs. TCU head coach Jim Schlossnagle had previously been announced as the head coach for the international team.
Bianco is entering his 13th season at Ole Miss and has brought a sustained level of success to the Rebel baseball program with a career record of 571-349-1 as a head coach (471-278-1 at Ole Miss).
