CHARLESTON, S.C. – Charleston Southern head baseball coach Stuart Lake has promoted Chris Brown to assistant coach. Zack Hagaman has been named a volunteer assistant coach.
Both Brown and Hagaman spent the 2015 season on Lake's staff. Both have also planted their baseball roots in the Lowcountry and throughout South Carolina.
"I am very excited to elevate Coach Brown and Coach Hagaman within our coaching staff," Lake said on Wednesday. "Coach Brown brings tremendous experience along with a passion to work daily with our players to ensure their success. I am also excited to see him use his playing experience and talents on the recruiting trail for our program. Coach Hagaman was an All-Big South player that will bring experience in the conference to our players. He has a strong commitment to CSU baseball that is reflected daily in his work ethic."
Brown, who played at South Carolina, will work with the infielders and coach base running. He will also work with CSU's hitters and play a major role in recruiting. Brown served as a volunteer assistant last season.
Hagaman will work primarily with the outfielders and oversee on-campus recruiting and operations. The Pawley's Island, S.C. native was a first team All-Big South selection as a designated hitter in 2013. He had 111 career hits and 67 RBI at CSU. He was also 5-1 with three saves as a pitcher. He was a student assistant last season and graduated from CSU in May with a degree in Social Sciences.
