Anthony Izzio

Tulane is bringing a familiar face back to its baseball coaching staff.

D1Baseball’s Kendall Rogers reports Anthony Izzio is coming back to New Orleans from Charleston Southern to serve as Jay Uhlman’s pitching coach.

Izzio replaces Daniel Latham, the former Green Wave pitcher who left the program to take the same role at Stetson.

Previously hired as an assistant at Tulane in August 2019, Izzio was responsible for handling the day-to-day operations for the outfielders as well as handling batting practice responsibilities for one season, the COVID-shortened 2020 campaign. Izzio was then hired by Charleston Southern to be their pitching coach, a role he served the past two seasons.

The Mississippi native spent the three seasons prior to his first stint at Tulane as the pitching coach and recruiting coordinator at Pearl River Community College in Poplarville, Mississippi. Before that, Izzio was the pitching coach and recruiting coordinator at East Mississippi Community College for two seasons.

As a player, Izzio pitched for South Alabama and Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College.
