Franklin BushMADISONVILLE, Ky. (10/10/17) — Franklin Bush has been hired as the new head coach of the Madisonville Miners for the 2018 season.

Bush is in his first season as an assistant coach at University of Montevallo after spending the 2016 season at the University of Buffalo. While at Buffalo, Bush helped coach hitting and infielders.

Bush earned his bachelor’s degree in Sports Management from Blackburn College in 2014 and graduated from Auburn University with a Master’s degree in Adult Education. He is extremely excited to have the opportunity to work with the Miners management, student – athletes and the community to build a championship caliber team both on and off the field.
