About our Speaker

Mitch ThompsonMitch Thompson
Baylor Head Baseball Coach

Mitch Thompson was selected as the 20th head baseball coach in program history on June 15, 2022. After nine seasons as the head coach of McLennan Community College and a previous 18-year stint as an assistant at Baylor, Thompson brings more than 30 years of coaching experience into his first season as Baylor head coach in 2023.

One of the most highly-respected coaches and recruiters in college baseball, Thompson returns to Baylor Ballpark after spending nearly two decades in the green and gold as a Baylor assistant. He helped lead the Bears to three Big 12 Conference titles, 12 NCAA Regional appearances, three Super Regional appearances and the 2005 College World Series during the most prolific stretch in program history from 1995 to 2012. Since the 2014 season, Thompson built Waco’s own McLennan CC into one of the nation’s premier junior college programs, coming off back-to-back JUCO World Series appearances including the 2021 national title.
