Liberty pitching coach Tyler Robinson has been hired to the same position at Ohio State, according to multiple sources and first reported by Kendall Rogers.

Robinson leaves the Flames after just one year in Lynchburg as the team’s pitching coach. He will rejoin former Campbell head coach Justin Haire who was announced as Ohio State’s new baseball coach on June 21. Robinson was on staff under Haire at Campbell for nine seasons before coming to Liberty a season ago.

Robinson was at Campbell for nine seasons, joining the Camels in 2014 and becoming the team’s pitching coach in 2019. The Camels made four NCAA Regional appearances with Robinson as pitching coach and five total during his time with the team. Campbell made an NCAA Regional appearance in each of his final five seasons with the program while winning the Big SOuth regular season in each of his four seasons and three Big South Tournament titles during his tenure as pitching coach.

Liberty struggled to a 24-34 record this past season on the diamond under Robinson and head coach Scott Jackson in the program’s first year in Conference USA. The Flames’ pitching staff had a 5.81 ERA on the season.

The Flames will be looking for its third pitching coach in as many seasons. Former pitching coach Matt Williams left Liberty following the 2023 season as he was named pitching coach at South Carolina. After one season with USC, Williams was recently named the pitching coach at Coastal Carolina under new Chanticleer head coach Kevin Schnall.
