MLB: Mike Mussina To Coach HS Basketball Team

Retired major league pitcher Mike Mussina was recently tapped to coach a high school basketball team in Pennsylvania.

Retired major league pitcher Mike Mussina was recently hired to coach a high school basketball team in Pennsylvania. 

Sports Illustrated cited the Williamsport Sun Gazette when it reported on June 12 Mussina was unanimously approved by the Montoursville Area School District Board of Education on Tuesday night to coach his high school, Montoursville Area High School, in basketball.  

Mussina, who earned more than $140 million during his 17-year MLB career, will receive a stipend of $4,170 to coach the Warriors, who finished 5-17 last season. The team also hasn't reached the district playoffs in a non-open format since 2008. 

According to the Baltimore Sun, the 44-year-old Mussina was a three-sport star at Mountoursville before pitching for Stanford. At his high school, he scored 1,382 points during his basketball career.

Mussina pitched for the Baltimore Orioles from 1991-2000, going 147-81 with a 3.53 ERA, becoming a five-time All-Star along the way. He left the Orioles in 2000 to sign a six-year contract worth $88.5 million with their AL East division rivals, the New York Yankees.  

He eventually went on to play eight more years for the Yankees, amassing a 123-72 record with a 3.88 ERA. He retired in 2008 at age 38 after going 20-9 with a 3.34 ERA in his final season. For his career, he compiled 270 wins. 

Mussina graduated from Montoursville Area High School in 1987.

Don Mattingly made a damned-if-you-do, damned if-you-don’t decision before Game 3 of the 2014 NLCS vs. the Cardinal on Monday and, no, it had nothing to do with trimming his sideburns. The Dodgers manager announced win or lose, he’d start ace Clayton Kershaw on three days rest in Game 4. Los Angeles ultimately lost Game 3 by a score of 3-1, thanks in part of a bullpen that might rival the Detroit Tigers for its inability to get outs. The potential second-guessin ...
