USJ Baseball winter news

Recommended Posts

USJ announced Clayton Gant as the new baseball coach today. Gant had a great pitching career at USJ, going 55-3 as a starter and was selected 4x All State, before going on to pitch at UT Knoxville and University of Memphis. He has spent the last 7-8 years as a college assistant coach, first at Union here in Jackson, followed by Oklahoma Wesleyan. He is leaving his current position as Assistant Head Coach at OKWU to return to Jackson and take the reins of the USJ program. Spencer Nelson and Ronnie Giddens both have great working relationships with Gant and both will remain as assistants on his staff.

Gant knows the game well and has a nice coaching resume to be only 30 years old. He is familiar with USJ and with the overall baseball landscape of West TN, so I would expect the adjustment to be a relatively simple one. Continuity with the assistant coaches will help even more with the transition. The players all met with him today and the ones I have spoken with really liked him.
