Kendall Rogers is reporting that Hobbs is being interviewed by the Yankees today.  This from a tweet:

SOURCE: In addition to interviewing
@umichbaseball
 pitching coach Chris Fetter yesterday, the
@Yankees
 are interviewing heralded
@RazorbackBSB
 pitching coach Matt Hobbs in NYC today.

I don’t expect the list of college pitching coaches interviewing with the #Yankees to end there.

This is absolutely huge for Hobbs to get interviewed by MLB teams just a year after Johnson was hired by the Twins and really started this college pitching coach straight to the MLB transition.  If Hobbs lands a MLB job this year, I think DVH can literally pick any single pitching coach in the country to replace him.  While we want to have continuity on the staff, it never hurts to sell pitching recruits that the quality of teaching you will receive in college is the same as the MLB.

I definitely want Hobbs to hang around, but I cannot blame him if the MLB comes calling.  It adds another selling point to this program which already has plenty:

- #3 program in the country according to D1 Baseball
-  DVH has more trips to Omaha as a HC than anyone currently active in college baseball
-  Brand new player development center is under construction

It is no wonder our recruiting is going as well as it is right now.

MLB teams won’t leave us alone. I haven’t seen anything official but on Twitter Luke Bonfield gave a shoutout to Doug Willey, our bullpen coach, for accepting a job with the Cubs.

I saw that too.

Awesome that our guys are getting shots at the next level.  Can only hope that we have a couple honing their skills and growing that talent pool for the day that we will not speak of.

Either way,  DVH is adding branches to that already impressive coaching tree.

Kendall Rogers tweeted out that the Yankees also reached out to Nate Yeskie and Kirk Saarloos who are generally regarded as two of the elite pitching coaches in the game.  Sounds like the Yankees will try to bring in a college pitching coach and it will be the new thing in the MLB moving forward.  It is good to know we have one who is highly sought after and that he is happy in Fayetteville, but who wouldn't be with the knowledge that a pitching lab you can build from scratch is about to start construction in the new player development center.

The Yankees wound up hiring Matt Blake who was promoted to director of pitching development in the Indians organization only two days ago.  Kendall Rogers tweeted this out:

The @Yankees have their new pitching coach. Blake is very well respected in the professional ranks.

This process also says a lot about the state of college baseball that Matt Hobbs, Nate Yeskie and Kirk Saarloos all said thanks but no thanks.
