Golloway Hires Foxhall for Baseball Staff

Sunny Golloway has decided to keep Scott Foxhall as part of the Auburn baseball coaching staff.

Auburn, Ala.--Sunny Golloway, Auburn's new head baseball coach, has made his first on-the-field coaching staff hire by retaining Scott Foxhall from former coach John Pawlowki's staff.

Foxhall, who came to Auburn five seasons ago from College of Charleston when Pawlowski was named head coach, will hold the title as pitching coaching for the Tigers, an assignment he held his first three seasons at Auburn.

Golloway is also keeping director of baseball operations, Scott Duval, on the staff. Duval has worked with each Auburn staff going back to Hal Baird's tenure as head coach.

"After meeting with Scott on a few occasions and visiting with him, it became very apparent to me that he has the ability and experience to lead our pitching staff towards the championships that we pursue," Golloway said.

"I visited with many high school and junior college coaches in our recruiting base area, and also talked to many pitching coaches around the SEC, and have heard nothing but rave reviews regarding Scott's ability to not only coach student-athletes, but also recruit outstanding prospective student-athletes to our Auburn campus.

"I am extremely excited to have him join our staff and know that he believes in our philosophy of recruiting players of the best character and athleticism to form a championship-caliber team year in and year out. This became apparent to me because of the character and true love for Auburn University that Scott Foxhall revealed in our conversations. We are fortunate and blessed to have him within our family."

Foxhall, a native of Greer, S.C., also served as recruiting coordinator for the Tigers, who have signed three consecutive classes ranked in the Top 25 nationally.

"I am equally excited and very grateful to be a part of Auburn baseball and to be in Coach Golloway's system of winning," Foxhall said. "Sunny's vision for the success of Auburn baseball is impressive. I am looking forward to passionately implementing his vision with our current players and on the recruiting trail."

The coach was a standout performer at College Charleston for three seasons after transferring there from Auburn where he was a walk-on for Coach Hal Baird. He is one of College of Charleston's career leaders in strikeouts, games started and complete games pitched.

In his 16 seasons as a collegiate coach 29 of his pitchers were drafted by Major League teams with seven going in the first 10 rounds.

Foxhall and his wife, the former Laura Ballenger, have twin children, Kade and Kennedy (5). The coach said he is thrilled and fortunate to have the opportunity to stay in Auburn.
