During his three year stint at Campbellsville, McKinley saw three players achieve All-American status and five named All-Conference while earning back-to-back Mid-South Conference titles. He returned to California in 2009 for a two-year stint at West Valley College (Saratoga) where he served as the team's pitching coach. His pitching staff led all of California in shutouts thrown in 2010 and three players were selected to the All-Conference team.
