Cossins attended Santa Rosa Junior College, and transferred to the University of Oklahoma and played college baseball for the Oklahoma Sooners. The Pittsburgh Pirates selected Cossins in the 39th round of the 1992 MLB draft, but he did not sign with Pittsburgh, returning to Oklahoma. The Texas Rangers selected him in the 15th round of the 1993 MLB draft. He played in Minor League Baseball through 2000. After his playing career, he worked for the Miami Marlins as a minor league manager for four years, and then became the Marlins' minor league catching coordinator in 2007. He was hired by the Chicago Cubs after the 2012 season to be their minor league field coordinator, succeeding Brandon Hyde, who was promoted to be the Cubs' director of player development. The Baltimore Orioles hired Cossins from the Cubs after the 2018 season to join Hyde's coaching staff.
