Meyers out at Old Dominion, returning to South Carolina


Old Dominion head coach Jerry Meyers has resigned to return to South Carolina as pitching coach.


Meyers compiled a record of 167-158 in six seasons with the Monarchs. He was the 2006 Coach of the Year in the Colonial Athletic Association as ODU finished second in the regular season. The Monarchs were co-regular season champs in 2007. ODU was 24-30 in 2010, including 11-13 in the CAA.


The pitching coach for the Gamecocks from 1997-2004, Meyers helped South Carolina reach the College World Series for three straight years from 2002 to 2004.


A four-year starting pitcher at Iowa State, Meyers was an assistant coach at Gulf Coast Community College, UNC Wilmington and Old Dominion.


Meyers replaced Mark Calvi, who left South Carolina to become head coach-in-waiting at South Alabama.


Nate Goulet, an assistant at ODU for the past five years, will serve as interim head coach for the Monarchs for the 2010-11 academic year.
