Charlotte head baseball coach Loren Hibbs has promoted assistant Brandon Hall to associate head coach, while continuing his duties as pitching coach and recruiting coordinator.
Hall, a Raleigh native, is entering his eighth season with the 49ers coaching staff, and the fifth season as the team's recruiting coordinator. His main on-field responsibility is handling the pitching staff.
“Over the past seven years, Brandon has developed into one of the top assistant coaches in this region,” said Hibbs. “He has displayed a tremendous work ethic, an incredible desire to improve and a loyalty to our program and this institution that is unmatched.
"He fits with our overall program philosophy and has been a major factor in our success in recent years. Brandon ‘gets it’ and I am really looking forward to continuing to work alongside him in the future.”
In his 11 seasons as an assistant at two different schools, Hall has been on a coaching staff of teams that have won five regular-season championships. Six of the pitching staffs have been ranked nationally in ERA, including the top spot in the nation in 2007 (with a team 2.64 ERA).
“I want to thank Coach Hibbs and the Charlotte 49ers for this promotion,” said Hall. “I have really enjoyed coming to work each day for the past seven years at Charlotte. We have accomplished a lot on and off the field as a program in that time, but we also understand there is still more to do. I am excited about what the future holds as we continue to grow as a program and University.”
