TC97: John Cohen, Mississippi State (part 1)


One of the most storied collegiate baseball programs in the country has produced some great players. One of those great players eventually became the head coach. On this episode, we’re talking to the head coach at Mississippi State University, John Cohen. And bucking the trend somewhat, he’s one of the few outfielders that has become a head coach at a big time program (at least according to the very unscientific and informal Top Coach survey).

Cohen grew up right across the border in Alabama, right in the shadow of the University of Alabama campus. In this episode, Coach Cohen talks about being allowed (and allowing others) to make mistakes, starting from (literally) the ground up by cutting grass and running concessions, and building up a huge negative balance on his Visa card as a sort of “investment” in his coaching future.
