Daniel Head
Eagles' Baseball Head Coach

 

Daniel Head is entering his seventh season as the Head Coach for the Eagles’ baseball program. Prior to becoming the head coach, he spent two years at Alabama Southern as an assistant coach and helped recruit back-to-back, nationally-ranked teams. He was awarded Assistant Coach of the Year by the Alabama Baseball Coaches Association for the 2005-2006 season. Before coming to Alabama Southern, he spent one year as assistant coach at Okaloosa-Walton College in Niceville, FL and one year as an assistant coach at Jefferson Davis Community College.

Last season, the Eagles had the best season in school history by making it to the Championship Game of the ACCC Region XXII Tournament. They were recognized in the NJCAA top 25 poll for the first time since the 2007 season. They were ACCC Southern Division Champions and earned a spot in the ACCC Region XXII Tournament in Ozark, AL. In the ten team tournament they finished runner-up and narrowly missed an automatic bid to the NJCAA World Series in Grand Junction, CO.

Jean Figueroa became the program’s 9th NJCAA All-American in the last 9 years. He was also named NJCAA Marucci Elite Hitter for the Southeast District, ACCC Defensive Player of the Year, First Team All-Region XXII, and First Team All-Conference. Along with Figueroa, Trevor Flynn, Hayden Roberts, Brandon Harigel, and Ryan Calloway were represented on the All-Conference Team. Eleven of the thirteen sophomores moved on to continue their careers at four year colleges, with seven of the thirteen signing with Division 1 programs.

In his six seasons as head coach, 59 of the 76 sophomores have graduated with their associate’s degree and 61 have moved on to the four-year level, with 32 of those becoming Division 1 players.

Head is a graduate of Satsuma High School in Satsuma, AL. After high school, he attended Jefferson Davis Community College where he was a part of the 1998 NJCAA National Championship team. After Jeff Davis, he transferred to the University of South Alabama where he lettered two years and was an All-Conference pitcher for the Jags. After his college career, he signed a professional contract with the Seattle Mariners organization and played four years of professional baseball, making it to Triple-A.

He is joined on his staff with assistant coaches Eli Cook, Tyler Jennings, and Korey Hall.
