Bradshaw Named BYU Baseball Pitching Coach

PROVO, Utah — Brigham Young University head baseball coach Mike Littlewood has announced the hiring of Michael Bradshaw as the Cougars’ pitching coach.

“Michael brings passion, energy, a great work ethic and invaluable experience from one of the top programs in the country,” Littlewood said. “He’s had the incredible opportunity to work beside legendary pitching coach Dave Lawn at the University of Arizona the past three seasons. I’m confident he’ll be a game changer for our pitching staff.”

Bradshaw comes to Provo from the University of Arizona where he was the assistant director of baseball operations from 2015-18 under head coach Jay Johnson.

During his time with the Wildcats, Bradshaw was a part of two NCAA Tournament runs, including an NCAA runner-up finish after Arizona advanced to the College World Series final.

Before working at Arizona, Bradshaw spent a year at the University of Nevada, Reno, helping the Wolf Pack win the school’s first Mountain West Conference title with a 41-15 record. Bradshaw was a pitcher at Nevada from 2012-14, making 20 appearances with 14 strikeouts over two seasons. He graduated with a bachelor’s degree in general studies in 2014.

“I would like to thank Coach Littlewood and the rest of the coaching staff for bringing me in and allowing me to be a part of the BYU baseball program and such an amazing community,” Bradshaw said. “I can’t wait to get started and couldn’t be more excited to be a Cougar.”
