Tennessee head baseball coach Todd Raleigh announced the hiring of Bradley LeCroy to the position of assistant baseball coach Wednesday. LeCroy is the first addition to Raleigh’s staff and will work primarily with the Volunteers infielders and hitters.
LeCroy was a key member of Raleigh’s staff at Western Carolina in 2006 and 2007, and he preceded his tenure at WCU with three distinguished seasons as a volunteer assistant coach at Clemson. In just five years in the college ranks, LeCroy has seen 17 of his players drafted by major-league franchises and has proven more than adept at developing young talent.
“We’re all very excited about having Bradley join the program,” Raleigh said. “He’s young, energetic, a great recruiter and is also skilled in player development. Our infielders should really benefit from working with him, but his impact will reach the entire program.
“He played at Clemson and worked on my staff at Western Carolina, so philosophically we’re on the same page. He’s been to Omaha (for the College World Series), so he knows what it takes for a team to reach that goal. Bradley’s got a great mind for the game and also has a wonderful family. He’ll be a key part of our program moving forward.”
