2012 Coaching Changes  


UNCG will name Jarrett head coach


UNC Greensboro will name Auburn assistant as its next head coach, sources confirmed to CollegeBaseballInsider.com Wednesday night.


Jarrett replaces Mike Gaski, who compiled a 657-540-1 record in 22 years leading the Spartans. Gaski, the president of USA Baseball since 2001, was the baseball program’s first coach and let go May 26 after a 25-27 (10-20) season in 2012.


Jarrett, a former standout shortstop at Florida State who still holds the NCAA record for assists (802), has spent the past three seasons as the director of player development for the Tigers. He previously spent four seasons as the hitting coach and recruiting coordinator at East Carolina. Other coaching stops included Flagler College (2000-02), Florida State (2003) and Mercer (2004-05).


Jarrett holds FSU records for consecutive games (235) and at-bats (989) and helped the Seminoles to three College World Series appearances (1991, 1992 and 1994). He was a 22nd round pick of Colorado and played in the Rockies organization from 1994-98.


He and his wife Jennifer have two children, J.T. and Dawson.
