JUCO Head Coach brings over 15 years of coaching experience to the Hoots

O’FALLON, Mo. – The O’Fallon Hoots, members of the Prospect League, announced the hiring of Johnathan Mills as the new Field Manager for the 2022 season. Mills replaces 2021 Field Manager Matt Brown who stepped down to pursue an opportunity outside of baseball.

“First, I’d like to thank Matt for his service to the organization as our first manager,” Hoots General Manager David Schmoll said. “When the Field Manager opening came up, Johnathan’s name was one of the first mentioned. He loves the game of baseball, has the experience to help develop the next generation of player and, most importantly, wants his players and fans to have fun at the ballpark. I am excited to have him as a part of our team.”

Mills echoed Schmoll’s sentiments.

“I am honored to be the next manager of the O’Fallon Hoots,” said Mills. “I have been excited watching what this organization has been building over the past two years and am now equally excited to be a part of it.”

Johnathan Mills is currently serving in his first season as Head Baseball Coach at East Central College in 2022. The Ft. Walton Beach, Florida-native played his collegiate baseball at Shelton State Community College in Tuscaloosa, Alabama before transferring to the University of Alabama where he served as a student assistant for the Crimson Tide baseball staff. Following graduation, he spent 13 years coaching in various ranks of high school, legion, travel and NCAA Division II baseball in the southeastern United States before joining East Central as a volunteer assistant coach in 2020.
