Coach leaves Dixie Hollins

published August 22, 2001

Dixie Hollins baseball coach Jonathan Wiggins has resigned to pursue a career in sales.

Wiggins, who coached the Rebels for four seasons, led Dixie to the region semifinal this spring. He compiled a 63-45 record.

Wiggins' new job is based in Fort Myers, and he has begun a training program in Chicago.

"I guess it was too good of an opportunity for him not to give it a shot," said Dunedin coach Tom Hilbert, who was on the board of directors of Pinellas County AAU Baseball with Wiggins before Wiggins resigned last week.

Anyone interested in coaching baseball at Dixie Hollins should send their resume to the attention of Walter Weller at 4940 62nd St. N., St. Petersburg, 33709, or fax (727) 547-7727.
