Erik Bakich completed his third season as head coach of the University of Michigan baseball program in 2015. The upward trend for Michigan baseball continued in 2015 as the Wolverines won the Big Ten Tournament and advanced to the regionals for the first time since 2008 winning 39 games in 2015. Bakich now has eight Louisville Slugger Freshman All-Americans, the most in the nation in that three-year span.
Bakich came to Ann Arbor after spending three years as the head coach at the University of Maryland. Bakich, who is currently the youngest head baseball coach at a BCS school, had an initial recruiting class at Maryland in 2010 that was ranked in the top 25 by Baseball America.
Bakich was the assistant coach at Vanderbilt University from 2003-09, serving as the Commodores' recruiting coordinator as well as being the hitting coach and working with the outfielders.While at Vanderbilt, Bakich recruited and coached David Price, who was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2007 draft.
Collegiate Baseball newspaper's 2008 National College Pitching Coach of the Year, Scott Forbes is in his 10th season mentoring North Carolina's pitching staff and his sixth as the Tar Heels' associate head coach.
Forbes, who has totaled a record of 761-314 in 17 seasons as an assistant coach, has been an instrumental part of the Tar Heels' run to the College World Series in six of the last nine seasons.
Under his guidance, the Carolina pitching staff has ranked among nation's top 50 in earned run average in each of the last eight seasons, including the fourth-lowest ERA in the nation in 2012. Baseball America recognized Forbes as one of the top assistant coaches in the country prior to the 2013 campaign.
On the recruiting front, Forbes played in an integral role in landing some of the nation's top talent as every class brought in to Carolina since 2007 has been ranked among the top 15 in the country.
Forbes, who is in his second stint in Chapel Hill, was an assistant at UNC from 1999-2002 and served as an assistant at Winthrop University for three seasons before returning to Carolina prior to the 2006 season. Forbes has watched over the top three strikeout pitchers in UNC history as Andrew Miller, Alex White and Patrick Johnson are the only hurlers to eclipse 300 strikeouts in a career.
NC State baseball named Scott Foxhall its pitching coach on June 30, 2014. Foxhall immediately had a positive impact with the 2015 Wolfpack pitching staff. Following the 2014 season, NC State lost six pitchers due to graduation and the draft, including first rounder Carlos Rodon. Missing every weekend starter and significant reliever from 2014, Foxhall completely rebuilt the pitching staff and shaped them into a group that finished second in the ACC with a 2.93 ERA. Pack pitchers ranked first in the nation in hits allowed per nine innings, second in strikeouts, and 15th in ERA.
Foxhall joined the NC State staff from Auburn, where he spent the 2014 season as pitching coach and served as the architect of Auburn's most recent recruiting classes. In 18 years as a collegiate coach, Foxhall has seen 33 of his pitchers selected in the MLB Draft, including seven in the first 10 rounds. He's also improved the draft status of pitchers under his tutelage by an average of 28 rounds.
Before heading to Auburn, Foxhall had an outstanding run at the College of Charleston, coaching the Southern Conference Pitcher of the Year four times while also molding one of the better overall pitching staffs in the league.
During Foxhall's coaching tenures at Auburn and CofC, 57 total players have been drafted, four players have been named conference Player of the Year, four have been named Pitcher of the Year and one has been named the conference Freshman of the Year. He has also helped recruit 58 all-conference selections, 17 All-America honorees, seven Freshman All-Americans and nine Academic All-Americans.
Foxhall spent two years as a pitcher at Auburn under legendary coach Hal Baird before heading to College of Charleston, where he was a three-time letterwinner from 1992-94.
Mike Hampton enters his 15th season at St. John's as the program's recruiting coordinator and hitting coach. A former collegiate All-American and fourth round draft choice, Hampton's keen eye for talent has given St. John's a presence in every level of competitive baseball.
Hampton has coached 44 players that have been drafted or signed to professional contracts in his tenure, including four Major Leaguers. All-American Joe Panik, a first round selection of the San Francisco Giants, highlighted a group of four players that went on to play professionally in 2011.
St. John's set new school-records in runs (473), hits (750), RBI (457) and doubles (150) in 2010 as a prolific offense helped the squad win a school-record 43 games. Jeremy Baltz earned NCBWA National Freshman Hitter of the Year honors and was named the Louisville Slugger National Freshman Player of the Year after leading the nation's freshman--and setting new single-season school-records--in both home runs (24) and RBI (85). The first consensus All-American in school-history, Baltz and classmate Kyle Hansen each earned Freshman All-America honors to give St. John's at least one freshman All-American in four-straight seasons.
Scott Jackson is entering his eighth year as an assistant baseball coach and the recruiting coordinator at the University of North Carolina in 2015. Jackson, who joined the Tar Heels in July 2008 after one season at Liberty, works with the offense, including hitting and base running, as well as infield play.
The Tar Heels have a record of 311-135 during Jackson's time in Chapel Hill and have turned in six NCAA tournament appearances, including three College World Series showings in 2009, 2011 and 2013.
Baseball America recognized Jackson as one of the top assistant coaches in the country prior to the 2013 campaign.
Monte Lee was named Clemson’s head baseball coach, announced June 18, 2015 by director of athletics Dan Radakovich. Lee served as head coach at College of Charleston for the previous seven seasons (2009-15), leading the program to a 276-145 (.656) record and four berths in the NCAA Tournament, including 2014 and 2015.
Lee, 38, received national acclaim in 2012 when he was named one of Baseball America’s top-10 head coaches in under the age of 40. He led the Cougars to four NCAA Tournament appearances, winning the Gainesville (Fla.) Regional in 2014 and advancing to the Lubbock (Texas) Super Regional after capturing the Colonial Athletic Association Tournament championship.
In his seven years at College of Charleston, Lee coached four conference players-of-the-year, two conference pitchers-of-the-year and two conference freshmen-of-the-year. Lee won 200 games at College of Charleston faster than any coach in school history. His teams consistently ranked among the nation’s best offenses.
Derek Matlock enters his third season as an assistant coach with the West Virginia baseball team, serving as the recruiting coordinator and pitching coach.
During his first two seasons with the Mountaineers the pitching staff has seen remarkable success, including the production of six MLB draftees. West Virginia finished 28-26 in 2014, while the pitching staff completed the season with a 3.73 ERA to rank sixth in the Big 12. The pitching staff posted its lowest earned-run average (3.73) since 1974, marking the first back-to-back under 4.00 ERA seasons since 1973-74. Additionally, the 198 earned runs allowed were the least since 1992.
Matlock coached five consecutive conference pitcher of the year honorees from 2009-13. He came to Morgantown after spending five straight winning seasons as the recruiting coordinator and pitching coach for Texas State.
On June 27, 2006, Dan McDonnell, one of the top young minds in college baseball, was named the 18th head coach of the University of Louisville baseball team. And on June 15, 2007, McDonnell and the Cardinals took the field at hallowed Rosenblatt Stadium in Omaha for game one of the 2007 College World Series.
As the first rookie head coach to lead his team to Omaha in 27 years, McDonnell was named National Coach of the Year by Rivals.com after guiding the Cardinals to a then-school record 47 wins during that 2007 season. He followed that impressive debut season by leading Louisville to six more NCAA appearances during the next seven years, including back-to-back College World Series berths in 2013 and 2014, as well as five conference regular season titles and two conference tournament championships. Louisville also hosted six different rounds of NCAA postseason baseball in the last eight years with NCAA Super Regionals in 2007 and 2014 and four NCAA Regionals in 2009, 2010, 2013 and 2014.
