Less than a week after Oklahoma hired Virginia Tech coach Pete Hughes to take over its baseball program, Hughes has started filling his staff.
Anderson had coached Regis Jesuit High in Denver for one season after being hired to replace Walt Weiss who left the job after being hired to manage the Colorado Rockies.
“We keep losing them to these great jobs,” Regis Jesuit athletic director Kelly Doherty told the Post. “Mike was awesome. I’m really going to miss him. I’m not in the mood to find a new baseball coach. But this is a great opportunity for Mike.”
Anderson was 337-196-2 in nine seasons coaching the Cornhuskers. He guided them to the 205 College World Series and was named Big 12 coach of the year in 2003 and 2005. He was fired after the 2011 season.
Anderson played college baseball at Northern Colorado.
