GREENSBORO – North Carolina A&T head baseball coach Ben Hall announced Wednesday, the appointment of former Aggies baseball player Stefan Jordan to be a volunteer assistant coach for the program.
Jordan, a four-year starter at catcher from 2011-14, will be responsible for coaching catchers, coordinating camps and assisting with other aspects of the program.
Jordan graduated N.C. A&T summa cum laude with a degree in journalism and mass communications in 2014. After graduation he accepted a position as an assistant coach at Division III powerhouse Marietta College in Marietta, Ohio under three-time national coach of the year Brian Brewer. During Jordan’s time there, the Etta Express won the 2016 OAC championship and played in the south regional in Rome, Ga. Jordan worked as the lead catching instructor, Don Schaly Stadium supervisor and also assisted with hitting, recruiting and other aspects of the program.
Under Jordan’s tutelage, Marietta College’s catchers had better caught stealing percentages, fewer passed balls, better fielding percentages and starting catcher Eric White was named All-OAC tournament and honorable mention All-OAC.
Prior to Marietta College, Jordan spent time as a coach and instructor with Heat Showcase Baseball in Hickory, N.C., and was an assistant coach for Hickory Post 48.
“I am excited to be able to bring Stefan back to Aggieland. Stefan is a proud alumnus and will help us continue to set the standard for Aggie Baseball,” said Hall. “His work ethic and energy will be a huge boost to our program going forward.”
