Wetteland is back in town

Not with the Rangers though, he’s working for a high school in Argyle. Here’s a story which I read on the WFAA site this afternoon:

Former Rangers reliever John Wetteland, the MVP of the 1996 World Series with the Yankees, has been hired as an assistant baseball and football coach at Argyle Liberty Christian, the school announced Friday.
Wetteland, who is a member of the Rangers Hall of Fame, will be an assistant to head football coach Mark Bowles, and become the varsity and junior varsity pitching coach alongside baseball coach Johnny Isom.
Wetteland, 40, made four saves for the Yankees during the 1996 Series.

I still think he needs to be our bullpen coach. No offense to Don Chiti, who is probably fine, but I really want to see Wetteland out there. And Rusty Greer as our hitting coach should Rudy ever decide to retire.
