MORRISTOWN - Carson-Newman assistant coach Mark Allen Bounds is returning to Walters State Community College to be a part of the Senators’ baseball coaching staff.

Bounds, a member of the 2008 JUCO World Series team with the Senators as a collegiate freshman, takes over the spot left open by the departure of Skylar Barnett to become the head coach at Milligan College. The move was announced Sunday. It’s the second straight offseason the Senators have had an assistant coach leave for a head coaching job. Dan Skirka just recently completed his first season as head coach at NCAA Division I Murray State.
