Western Hills named Eric Grubb as its new head baseball coach Monday morning, according to WHHS Athletic Director Craig Fry.
Fry said he met and interviewed candidates Wednesday night and hoped to make a decision by Thursday evening.
Grubb, who is a former assistant coach for the Wolverines, takes over the position from Seth Knight. Knight resigned in mid-July to coach at Paul Laurence Dunbar where he teaches English.
Knight coached at WHHS for four years, posting a 63-55 record. The Wolverines won two 41st District tournament championships during his tenure.
WHHS baseball finished last season 11-16 after losing 7-0 to Franklin County in the first round of the district tournament.
