Brent Wyatt takes reins of CBC Baseball - Boruff moves to Tulane University
Brent Wyatt enters his first year as Head Coach of the Columbia Basin College baseball program. Wyatt replaces Gabe Boruff, who resigned his position with CBC to accept a coaching position at Tulane University.
A 2003 Ellensburg High School graduate, Wyatt was named Mid-Valley League Most Valuable Player as a senior. Wyatt took his talents to East Region rival Wenatchee Valley College, playing for Coach Boruff as a sophomore, where he was named to the All-Conference Team.
As an East Region All-Star, Wyatt accepted a scholarship to NAIA baseball powerhouse Lewis-Clark State College. Playing for Hall of Fame Head Coach Ed Cheff, Wyatt played on two National Championship teams in 2007 and 2008.
Following his time at LCSC, Wyatt was drafted by the Detroit Tigers at the conclusion of his senior campaign. Wyatt played professionally through 2012, reaching AA in the organization.
Upon the close of his time in professional baseball, Wyatt began coaching immediately, returning first to his roots at EHS, before spending the next two seasons at Madison High School in Rexburg, Idaho.
CBC Athletic Director Scott Rogers is excited about the transition saying "I'm happy about the professional opportunity Coach Boruff is moving into. Moving to the D1 level is what he wanted to do when he started at CBC, so we're excited the opportunity presented itself so quickly. We're also excited for Coach Wyatt and the opportunity he's earned. It's not often a program can transition and replace one dynamic coach with another. We look forward to seeing where Coach Wyatt can take us."
