Nebraska Baseball Announces Change In Pitching Coach

Jeff Christy is out as Nebraska’s pitching coach.

It was announced early Tuesday afternoon that the Huskers and pitching coach Jeff Christy have mutually agreed to part ways.

“Jeff and I have a close relationship dating back to our College World Series run in 2005,” said Bolt. “He played a key role for the last four seasons and helped us earn a Big Ten Championship and NCAA Regional Final appearance in 2021. I wish Jeff and his family nothing but the best moving forward.”

Christy served as an assistant coach for Bolt for four seasons at Nebraska and worked with Bolt on Texas A&M’s staff for two seasons (2018-19) and at Nebraska under Darin Erstad from 2012 to 2014.

Christy was drafted by the Minnesota Twins in the sixth round of the 2006 MLB Draft after catching a school record 64 games for Nebraska in 2005 and being an Honorable mention All-Big XII in 2006.


Nebraska has a person many consider the best pitching coach in school history and one of the top pitching minds of the past 20 years in the NCAA on staff in a supporting role in Rob Childress. It remains to be seen if he will be offered the spot of one of his former protégés.
