Mike Mussina returns to high school alma mater as boys basketball coach

By

Former Orioles and Yankees pitcher Mike Mussina has returned to his high school alma mater as a coach, but not of the baseball team.

The Williamsport Sun-Gazette reports that the Montoursville (Pa.) school board approved Mussina, who won 270 games over his 18-year major league career, as the school's new boys basketball coach on Tuesday.

Mussina starred in football, basketball and baseball at Montoursville from 1983-87 before attending Stanford on a baseball scholarship. He replaces Mark Molesky, who will remain on staff as Mussina's first assistant after guiding the Warriors to a 5-17 record last season.

Quinten Persun, a rising junior on the Montoursville basketball team, reacted to the news as one might expect someone who wasn't old enough to remember most of Mussina's major league career would:

Mussina, who had earned more than $140 million by the time he retired after the 2008 season, will be paid a stipend of $4,170.
