Georgia State's all-time leader in victories, Greg Frady has established an unprecedented pattern of winning within the Panther baseball organization in his 10 seasons at the helm.
On March 20, 2016 vs. Arkansas State, Frady earned his 294th victory at Georgia State to surpass Mike Hurst, who finished his Panther career in 2006 with 293 career wins. Later in 2016, Frady achieved win No. 300 vs. Appalachian State.
Named the Panthers' eighth head coach in June 2006, Frady also boasts the highest winning percentage of any coach in school history.
Prior to Frady's arrival, the GSU program had achieved just two winning seasons in its history and had never won more than 31 games in any year. But since he took the reins for the 2007 campaign, he has guided the Panthers to six winning seasons, all with 30 or more wins. Along the way he has steered the program through three different conferences, including Georgia State's move into the highly-competitive Sun Belt Conference in 2013-14.
Assistant Coach/Pitching Coach
Former Major League pitcher Chris Bootcheck joined the Georgia State baseball staff as pitching coach in August 2016.
Bootcheck, a right-hander, played in seven Major League seasons from 2003-13, primarily with the Los Angeles Angels, the team that selected him out of Auburn in the first round of the 2000 MLB Draft.
Bootcheck has college coaching experience after assisting with the pitchers at NAIA program Georgia Gwinnett College, which reached the NAIA World Series in 2014 in just its second season of existence. That year, two Georgia Gwinnett pitchers and one catcher were selected in the MLB Draft.
Assistant Coach/Recruiting Coordinator
Adam Pavkovich, formerly an assistant coach at Notre Dame and an eight-year veteran of professional baseball, joined the Georgia State staff as assistant coach and recruiting coordinator in 2015-16.
Pavkovich spent the previous two seasons at Notre Dame, which he helped to an NCAA Regional berth in 2015. He worked with infielders and hitting for the Fighting Irish, who led Division I in double plays while ranking ninth nationally in fielding percentage last season.
Pavkovich went to Notre Dame after one season (2013) as an assistant coach at Alabama-Huntsville.
Brock Bennett joined the Georgia State baseball coaching staff as volunteer assistant coach in 2015-16 after three seasons as an assistant coach at Georgia Perimeter College. He works with the Panthers' catchers, assists with hitting instruction and coaches first base.
In three seasons at Georgia Perimeter, Bennett helped the Jaguars win a pair of region titles. He coached the first-team all-conference catcher all three years, and four GPC players were drafted during his time there.
Before going to GPC in 2013, Bennett served one year as the head coach of the middle school team at the Lovett School in Atlanta.
Director of Baseball Operations
Former Georgia State pitcher Brandon Kersey is in his fourth year as Georgia State's Director of Baseball Operations.
Kersey was promoted to the Director of Operations position on head coach Greg Frady's staff in August 2013 after serving as graduate assistant for the baseball program in 2012-13.
Kersey lettered in 2005-06 for the Panthers before transferring to Georgia, where he completed his bachelor's degree in criminal justice/pre-law in 2009.
