Nathan Frisby, a Hilldale graduate who was serving as an assistant coach there, became Muskogee’s new baseball coach when his hiring was approved by the Muskogee school board Tuesday.
Frisby began his career as an assistant coach under then-head coach Mack Chambers.
“That was very important, to have someone who wanted to be a part of the community and remain here,” Muskogee athletic director Garrett Davis said. “Nate communicated to us during the interview process that this is where he wanted to be. He and his family live here. He wants to get involved with the little league program at Hatbox which is something we wanted and not only to get involved there, but to also get that program to be around our program, our boys, our coaches and our facilities.”
Frisby and Eufaula coach Victor Paden were finalists. Davis started his job here in June after serving as Eufaula’s athletic director.
“Victor did a good job at Eufaula. We got Nate and hopefully we’ll be able to surround him with a good staff and get things rolling,” Davis said.
