Lee, who was named head coach on June 18, retained Bradley LeCroy as recruiting coordinator. Lee also named Andrew See as pitching coach, Greg Starbuck as volunteer assistant and retained Brad Owens as director of baseball operations.
"I'm very excited about my three assistant coaches along with Brad Owens," said Lee.
"Retaining Coach LeCroy was a no-brainer. He's a Clemson guy and is very experienced
in the day-to-day operations of Tiger baseball. He has a long history of recruiting
and coaching at a high level.
"Coach See is one of the best, young pitching coaches in the country. He has the
ability to recruit nationally and has done so for a number of years. His pitchers at
Duke in recent years were some of the best in school history.
"Coach Starbuck may be one of the best volunteer assistants in the country based on
his resumé. He has 17 seasons of experience at the Division I level and is an
excellent evaluator of talent.
"Brad Owens will continue to hold the position of director of operations. He assists
with team travel, camps and many administrative duties. He is very organized and
works extremely hard."
LeCroy, who has served as an assistant at Clemson for eight seasons over two stints
(2003-05,11-15), will work with the infielders and assist with the hitters along
with his duties as recruiting coordinator. He has helped recruit several top-20
classes in recent years. In both 2014 and 2015, he coached five hitters to All-ACC
seasons, including First-Team All-ACC catcher Chris Okey in 2015. LeCroy, 37, also
has coaching experience at Tennessee (2008-10) and Western Carolina (2006,07).
LeCroy, a Clemson graduate (2001) and four-year letterman as a Tiger, is married to
wife, Meredith. The couple has two sons, Crew and Cooper.
See, 36, spent the previous three seasons (2013-15) as Duke's pitching coach.
Despite his top-two starters suffering injuries in 2015, that staff had a 3.29 ERA.
In 2014, the Blue Devil staff had a 3.14 ERA, the program's best mark since 1971 and
its first sub-4.00 ERA since 1993. Those two ERAs are the best Blue Devil marks
since the advent of aluminum bats. See also served as pitching coach and recruiting
coordinator at Ohio from 2007-12 after being an assistant at Appalachian State
(2005,06) and UNC Greensboro (2004). See, who played three seasons (1999-01) at
Ohio, graduated from Ohio in 2002 and is married to wife, Shauna.
Starbuck, 51, served as an assistant coach at Elon for 17 seasons (1999-15),
including 11 years as associate head coach. Starbuck, who will work with the hitters
and baserunning along with assisting with the infielders and catchers, was Elon’s
recruiting coordinator and served as the primary hitting instructor. Starbuck played
at UNC Asheville (1985,86) as a shortstop for two years after transferring from
Montreat (1983,84). He received his degree from Winston-Salem State in 1991. He and
his wife, April, have three sons, McGwire, Banks and Jackson, and a daughter,
Owens has served as director of baseball operations at Clemson for eight seasons
(2008-15). His duties include all team travel, camps and many other administrative
duties. Owens, 31, lettered four times as a righthander at Anderson (S.C.) before
graduating in 2006.
