But he may have to stand waiting at the plate for awhile. Asked to explain this stunning turn of events, Mount Paran officials have balked.
Cochran expects the school still intends to have Reese, who was drafted by the Atlanta Braves out of high school, to take over the program next year.
The Eagles went 14 14 in Cochran's first season, then fell back to 10 15 in 2010 before improving to 20 11 last year and advancing to the second round in their first state playoff appearance Nike Air Max Thea Pink Print

Kenny Palmer has been offered a new contract to remain at Mount Paran, but Cochran did not want to speculate whether Palmer will remain with the baseball team.
Unfortunately, my sons never got to play ball for Coaches Cochran or McDonald, both men of fine character, but they did get to play for another outstanding coach of that great generation.
As it turns out, Cochran is not the only baseball personnel matter Mount Paran is going to have to deal with.
Mount Paran has steadily improved since Cochran took over the program in 2009.
Cochran has compiled a 675 354 record in his four decades as a high school baseball coach, including a 64 42 mark in his four years with the Eagles.
Cochran was informed via a telephone call from Jordan on Tuesday that he won't be back next season, with the only reason being the school is heading in "different direction."
Cochran talked with his players for the first time about the situation before practice Wednesday. Despite the turmoil, he said he does not believe this will become a distraction on the field.
"He's certainly put his mark on the program," said Marietta attorney Fred Bentley Jr., who also played for Cochran at North Cobb and helped bring his former coach to Mount Paran. "He was brought in to create a winning program, and that's what he's done."
Mount Paran Headmaster David Tilley, in a terse, one sentence email Wednesday, said when asked about Cochran's impending dismissal, "We do not comment on employment issues." Athletic Director Mitch Jordan also did not answer or return repeated calls from the Journal on Tuesday and Wednesday.
"It shouldn't," he said. "These kids are all young enough and resilient enough that all they have to do is go out and do what they know how to do."

being retained. MPCS is a private school. Harvey,while a well respected coach in some circles has been known to use some pretty tough language with the boys. It is a Christian School. The baseball program is improved, but this is more due to the growth of the athletic department and enrollment at the school. MPCS has a great facility and this is attracting players. Some of this is due to satisfaction of the programs at neighboring Harrison and Kennesaw Mountain HS.
The parents of today have a sense of entitlement that is indicative of all that is wrong with this country. We are in a big mess because of that misguided sense.
Led by Ryan Murphy, who began the week second in the county in batting average (.473) and first in RBIs (23), and a pitching staff of Logan Haner, Jordan VerSteeg and Andrew Maxwell, who each have five wins and ERAs of 1.01 or lower, Mount Paran Christian is a legitimate contender for the state championship.

He made his biggest mark at North Cobb, where he won 571 games and led the Warriors to seven region titles. .
Reese, a former player for Cochran at North Cobb, was hired before the season from St. Francis High School in Alpharetta, with the plan that he would succeed his mentor as coach. However, that wasn't supposed to happen for another season.
Mount Paran, whose only losses have come against Class AAAA Kell and Region 6A rival Darlington, has also beaten three Class AAAAA teams and two out of state opponents.
Over the years I have probably made more money than all the Mt Paran parents combined, but my kids went to public school, I never drove a BMW and I never interefered with my kids' teachers and coaches.
In the end, it could leave assistant coach Kyle Reese by himself in the dugout.
"I told Mitch (Jordan), 'Just make sure people realize I didn't do anything wrong,'" Cochran said.
"We talked about it again last year, and I told him we didn't really have anyone on the current staff that was ready to be a full time head coach. That's why we brought in Kyle."
"When I was hired, I told Dr. Tilley, 'I'll give you five years,'" Cochran said.
I thought best to leave them to do their job, lest they decide to interfere with mine.
Pitching coach Dave McDonald, a former long time Wheeler coach, has already said he will not return. Cochran said assistant coach Jim Rismiller, who is a current school administrator, is planning on retiring at the end of the school year.
