Could Cribby, former Mount Si High School head baseball coach, be on the move again?

Got another piece of news as well for you this afternoon that we spotted on Twitter earlier today. It appears former Mount Si High School head baseball coach Elliott Cribby may be on the move again – this time coming back home for a second time in his college coaching career.

D1baseball.com’s Kendall Rogers reported on Twitter last night that Cribby is poised to be hired as the University of Washington’s baseball pitching coach. Cribby, a former UW baseball standout, would be leaving a similar position at Indiana’s Purdue University if he is officially hired by the Huskies, which as far as we know has not happened yet.

Cribby, as many Mount Si fans will remember, spent the 2011 and 2012 seasons as Mount Si’s head coach, leading the Wildcats to their only baseball state title in program history, in 2011. Following the 2012 season, he departed Mount Si to embark on his college coaching career, which prior to his stint at Purdue included stops at both Texas’ Abilene Christian University and at Seattle University as well before taking the Purdue job prior to this season.

Cribby’s potential move may partially be related to news that his boss at Purdue, head coach Mark Wasikowski, was yesterday hired as head baseball coach at the University of Oregon. It is not known if Purdue will talk to Cribby about taking over the head job there, but if he doesn’t end up getting promoted there, then the UW job may end up being his. So we’ll see what happens.

Whatever occurs, it’s going to be another big move for the former MSHS head man, a coach who has made many a big move since leaving the Wildcats in 2012.
