Former Big Leaguer Tettleton Now A Rookie Coach With Eagles
Mickey Tettleton accomplished a lot in his MLB career. The Oklahoma City native hit 245 career home runs, made two All-Star teams and won three Silver Slugger Awards.
But now the former OSU Cowboy is back in the college game, but for the first time as a coach. Tettleton was hired as an assistant coach at Oklahoma Christian, and has made an instant impact.
The Eagles team batting average has improved from .287 a year ago to .297, and their 21 wins are already just one off their total victories from last season.
Tettleton has worked with high school players in the past but has been trying to get into college coaching for the past few years.
