Following a disappointing season on the diamond, the Florida Gators have parted ways with pitching coach Mike Bosch, head coach Tim Walton announced Thursday.

Bosch joined the Florida coaching staff prior to the 2019 season. In his first year with the Gators, senior pitcher Kelly Barnhill earned All-American honors by the NFCA. In 2021, Elizabeth Hightower earned All-American status as well.

“At the conclusion of the season Mike and I sat down and discussed the year and his career here as our pitching coach,” head coach Tim Walton told, “We decided that moving in a different direction was best for the program.”

In addition to the All-American’s, his staff earned three All-SEC selections and ten SEC Pitcher of the Week nominees.

Bosch told, “Being part of this University of Florida championship program has been an amazing professional and personal experience.” He went on to thank Walton and athletic director Scott Stricklin while wishing success for Coach Walton and the team.

Bosch joined the Florida program following three years as the head coach at Syracuse where his teams compiled a 88-65 record. Bosch left the Syracuse program to take an assistant coach role with Florida.

Florida will conduct a national search to find the right fit as the Gators welcome a much heralded class of ’23 that features the top two prospects in the nation, (both pitchers) in Keagan Rothrock (Indianapolis) and Ava Brown (Montgomery, TX), according to MaxPreps.
