FDTC adds McDonald as an assistant coach
Jeremy McDonald, a native of Chicago, Ill., will work directly with the Stingers’ pitching staff. He brings nearly 10 years of collegiate coaching to the job. McDonald replaces Rocky Mauriello, who left after last season to become the pitching coach at Delaware State University. Last season the Stingers went 46-8, earning the program’s best ever record. The Stingers capped off the season by making the program’s second-ever appearance in the JUCO World Series. While serving as an analytics assistant at Coastal Carolina University McDonald created and managed several databases to help organize statistics, and he also created video packages for the coaching staff and players. His work was integral to Chanticleers in the advanced scouting of opponents. During his time on the support staff, CCU won the Sun Belt conference tournament twice (2018, 2019) and made the NCAA regionals twice (2018, 2019). McDonald spent three seasons in the Beach Collegiate Baseball League from 2017-2020 as a head coach. He served as an assistant coach with the Ripken Summer Collegiate Baseball League in 2021. His summer league experience led his teams to championship play two out of the last four.
