NORMAL – Second year head baseball coach Michael Tompkins has decided to resign to pursue other interest.
“I will be forever grateful for the opportunity that I was given here on “The Hill” by Bryan Hicks and the administration,” said Tompkins. “I want to thank all of the players for all of the hard work that they put in and I wish them all of the best in their future endeavors.”
“I will be pursuing a business opportunity in my home state of Washington with my wife Becky and be around family as we welcome our daughter Bailee next month. This was not an easy decision to make but a decision based on the well-being of my family.”
