Tulane pitching coach Daniel Latham departs for Stetson
In meeting the media for the first time as Tulane’s new head baseball coach on Wednesday, Jay Uhlman alluded to the possibility of having to hire two assistant coaches.
It’s now confirmed.
Pitching coach and former Green Wave closer Daniel Latham is departing for a similar post at Stetson, he confirmed Friday afternoon on Twitter.
Proud and excited to join @StetsonBaseball. Tulane will always be a special place to me and my family. Thankful for the opportunity to become a Hatter 🎩 and be a part of such an amazing tradition of success. https://t.co/iUWddt4fEQ

“Tulane will always be a special place to me and my family,” Latham said in his twet. “(I’m) thankful for the opportunity to become a Hatter and be a part of such an amazing tradition of success.”
Latham, who pitched at Tulane from 2004-07 and got the final out of Tulane’s super regional clinching victory over Rice in 2005 to clinch the Green Wave’s last trip to the College World Series, shares a bond with Stetson coach Steve Trimper.
Like Latham at Tulane, Trimper played one season at Elon College for Rick Jones.
Uhlman will, of course, also have to replace his own position of hitting coach and recruiting coordinator.
