The future of the WVU Baseball program is set at the top, but might not be in terms of the rest of the coaching staff. West Virginia has lost one of its key assistant coaches to a Big 12 rival.

Mark Ginther is leaving the Mountaineers to re-join Oklahoma State. This is according to a report Tuesday morning by Kendall Rogers of

Ginther played for the Cowboys from from 2009-12 and then got his start in coaching there as a Player Development Coordinator in 2015. He then moved into a Volunteer Assistant role for three more seasons.

While success often brings opportunities for assistant coaches and Ginther is going back to his alma mater, his departure will leave West Virginia without one of his most tenured coaches during the transition from Randy Mazey to Steve Sabins. Ginther has been with WVU since 2019 and has helped to impact recruiting over that time. The 2019 class ranked No. 21 nationally, marking WVU’s first top-25 recruiting class. Every class after that has continued to build upon that and has also ranked inside the top-40 nationally.
