Westmoore baseball is bringing a familiar face back to Cleveland County.

Former Oklahoma baseball player Andrew McGuire was named the Jaguars' new head coach during a Moore Public Schools special board meeting Thursday.

"He brings a wealth of high school and collegiate coaching experience," said Brian Fitzgerald, Moore Public Schools athletics director, in a statement, "as well as commitment to developing young baseball players into men of character.

"Between his vast knowledge and esteemed work ethic, we believe he will lead the program successfully."

The job came open when Joe Patterson left Westmoore following the 2019 season to coach Mustang. McGuire now takes over a perennial Class 6A title contender in his first head coaching position.

McGuire, 39, most recently worked as an assistant at Oklahoma Christian. He joined the Eagles' staff in 2012 and his responsibilities included developing the team's hitters and infielders.

McGuire also held assistant positions with Oklahoma, Texas-Pan American and Edmond Santa Fe High School. He played for the Sooners in 2003 and 2004.
