Oxford baseball coach Roberson to step down after this season

By NEMS Daily Journal

OXFORD – Already having accomplished a lot in such a short period of time as a baseball coach, Bradley Roberson will step away from the high school diamond to spend more time within the walls of a school.
The 31-year-old Oxford High coach announced he will be resigning from his coaching position at the end of this season, his fifth as the Chargers baseball head coach. The Ripley High and Ole Miss graduate was an assistant baseball coach at Oxford for five years before taking over at the helm.
In 2005, the season before he became the head coach, Oxford won the MHSAA Class 4A state title. Last year, Oxford won the Division 2-4A title.
“I’m looking at getting into administration or maybe an assistant principal position,” said Roberson, whose career record prior to Friday’s game against Saltillo was 101-44.
Roberson is currently in his second year as Oxford High’s associate athletic director, and will keep the same title next year.
