SFA Baseball Coach Watson Out

Stephen F. Austin Head Baseball Coach Donnie Watson is out as head baseball coach. 

Watson met with athletic director Robert Hill Tuesday afternoon, who Watson says gave no reason for the decision. 

Watson was hired in September of 2004, and coached the Lumberjacks to their first ever Southland Conference Tournament. SFA finished the season 25-29, 12-17 in the Southland Conference.

Watson was not surprised by the decision.  "I knew it was coming," Watson says after returning from two weeks of medical leave.  Watson added that he believes assistant coach Johnny Cardenas will be asked to take a interim head coaching position.

There has been no official announcement yet from Stephen F. Austin.
