|Morrison hired at Ouachita to led baseball program|
Ouachita Parish High School has found the man they want to lead the Lions Baseball Program.
Monday, OPHS Principal Todd Guice announced that Josh Morrison is the new head coach for the Lions. The hire is tentative, pending approval by the Ouachita Parish School Board.
"After a thorough search that provided our committee with the opportunity to visit with a fantastic group of baseball coaches across this state, we feel like we have chosen the coach that is the right fit to lead our baseball program," Guice said. "As a current coach in the area, Josh brings to the table a knowledge of our opponents and experience as a former player at ULM as well as the professional level that we feel will be a huge asset to our program."
Morrison replaces Brian Carter, who resigned as OPHS baseball coach in May. Morrison comes to OPHS after a one year stint as an assistant baseball and football coach at Bastrop High School.
Prior to last season, Morrison was an assistant baseball and football coach at Prairie View Academy in Bastrop. Morrison played catcher at the University of Louisiana at Monroe from 2003-2007. After his college career, he played independent league baseball for a couple of years before shifting his focus to coaching.
Morrison takes over a program that has failed to make the playoffs the past two seasons. Ouachita finished the 2012 season with a 15-18 record and is 59-72 over the last four seasons.
