Creighton baseball hires Mitch Mormann as pitching coach

Creighton hired Mitch Mormann to become its new pitching coach, the school announced Wednesday.

Mormann spent the last three seasons as Ohio’s pitching coach and recruiting coordinator; he worked for two years with coach Rob Smith, a former Bluejay assistant who retired in 2021. The Bobcats ranked 97th in team ERA last season (4.74), led by No. 68 overall major league draft pick Joe Rock.

Mormann is stepping into the position previously held by Eric Wordekemper, who accepted a scouting position with the Miami Marlins during the offseason after five seasons on staff at his alma mater.

“The tradition that Coach (Ed) Servais has built within the program over the years is inspiring, and I’m excited to now be a part of it,” Mormann said in a statement. “I look forward to helping Creighton baseball continue to compete at a championship level.”

Mormann, who won an Iowa Class 3-A state championship in 2007 with West Delaware, pitched in college at Des Moines Area Community College, LSU and Wichita State. He was selected in the MLB draft three times — as high as the 17th round after his first year of juco ball in 2008.

He also coached at DMACC, North Dakota and South Dakota State.

“We’re very pleased to have Mitch come on board,” Servais said in a statement. “I think he is going to add a lot to our pitching staff and his experience as the recruiting coordinator at Ohio will also impact our process, as well.”
