Former Wildcat coach Gary Henderson set to take over at Mississipip State

Athletic Director John Cohen has named MSU pitching coach Gary Henderson as interim head coach.

Cannizaro, who played professional baseball, spent three seasons as an assistant for LSU from 2014-16 before being hired by Mississippi State.

Cannizaro is a former LSU coaching assistant who starred as a player at Tulane. "I hope Mississippi State University and all of the fans and people affected will one day forgive me".

This comes after multiple reports surfaced on Monday night stating that MSU would fire Cannizaro. Murray reports that "university officials have yet to state on record what said cause is". An official announcment is expected on Tuesday morning.

In India too, automakers are experiencing growing demand for the petrol and hybrid vehicles compared to the diesel models. Porsche is all-set to reveal its first all-electric saloon, the Mission E in 2019.

Cannizaro, 39, was introduced on November 5, 2016, the same day Cohen officially took over as MSU's athletic director. He has significant coaching experience, including eight years as the head coach at the University of Kentucky, where he won the 2012 SEC Coach of the Year award. The Bulldogs opened the 2018 season this past weekend, losing to Southern Mississippi in a three-game sweep.

Mississippi State reached an NCAA Super Regional last postseason, in Cannizaro's first year.

Cannizaro's brash, energetic personality seemed to be a flawless fit at Mississippi State.

"Although I have taken this position under some unfortunate circumstances, I have been with this team for two years", Henderson said in a release. "We have great student-athletes and a tremendous staff who proudly represent our tradition-rich program". He came from LSU, where he was the program's hitting coach and recruiting coordinator. There was a scheduled media availability with Cannizaro and outfielder Jake Mangum in advance of the team's Wednesday game at Jackson State, but that press conference has been canceled.
