Drew Bailey was named Averett University’s baseball coach in June 2017 following three seasons as an assistant coach at Bluefield College. Bailey is Averett’s third head coach in the program’s history.
During his time at Bluefield, an NAIA school, Bailey served as the pitching coach and recruiting coordinator while assisting with hitters and catchers. In each season, his pitching staff totaled more than 300 strikeouts. Twice the Rams qualified for the NCCAA Tournament, earning a bid in the NCCAA College World Series in 2015 and 2017.
A native of Christiansburg, Virginia, Bailey played collegiately at Division II Concord University, where he was an all-conference relief pitcher twice. During his time there, he set the school record for saves and pitching appearances, and was a member of the 2008 Concord team that broke the program’s wins record. Following his junior season in 2010, Bailey was selected in the 35th round of the Major League Baseball draft by the Oakland Athletics. He had his best pro season in 2011, when he went 5-0 with a 2.34 earned run average with the Single A Vermont Lake Monsters. In addition to the Athletics’ organization, he also played with three independent teams.
Jordan Quinn joined the baseball program as an assistant coach/recruiting coordinator in August 2016.
Quinn comes to Averett from Washington College in Chestertown, Maryland, where he served as the pitching coach for the 2015 season. While there, his team had the second lowest earned run average and was second in walks allowed in the Centennial Conference. Additionally, he instructed a Centennial Conference Honorable Mention selection and was part of a program that recorded its second most wins in a season with 26.
Prior to joining Washington, he was a pitching coach for the Sterling Xpress of the Rocky Mountain Collegiate Baseball League, where he coached a 48-game regular season.
