WMBD/WYZZ-TV - NORMAL, Ill. - Mark Kingston is leaving Illinois State.
The Redbirds' head baseball coach has stepped down in Normal to become head coach at South Florida.
“It’s been an honor and privilege to be the head baseball coach at Illinois State University,” Kingston said. “We were able to have great success, because of the foundation laid by Duffy Bass, Jeff Stewart, Jim Brownlee and the loyal and proud ISU baseball alumni.
In his fives seasons at ISU, Kingston's Redbirds won two Missouri valley regular season titles and one conference tournament championship. ISU played in the last two MVC Tournament title games.
