Angels' double-A coach resigns, becomes Tennessee assistant

June 24, 2011 |  6:50 pm

Bill Mosiello, the manager of the Angels' double-A team in Arkansas (the Travelers), has resigned to take a job as an assistant coach at Tennessee, the Angels announced Friday.

Mosiello stepped down after a game Thursday to accept a job with the Volunteers, who recently hired former Cal State Fullerton coach Dave Serrano as their head coach. The two worked together at Cerritos College in the late 1980s. Mosiello also coached at Tennessee in 1994. 

Todd Takayoshi, a minor league hitting coordinator, will take over the Angels' double-A club until July 31 when Bobby Mitchell will become manager. Mitchell, in his ninth year with the Angels, is a roving outfield, baserunning and bunting coordinator.

Mosiello, 46, resigned three days after the Travelers locked up a playoff spot by winning the first half of the Texas League North Division with a 36-31 record.
