Doyle Wilson Named Assistant Coach
June 24, 2007
LOS ANGELES -- Doyle Wilson has been named assistant coach for the USC baseball program, head coach Chad Kreuter announced today.
'Doyle is a coach with great recruiting experience, who will be a wonderful addition to our program,' said Kreuter. 'He has done a great job at Chandler-Gilbert in finding guys with talent and coaching them well. I'm excited to have someone with his scouting background on my staff. He also has some great recruiting pipelines in Arizona which should help us.'
Wilson, who will be USC's lead recruiting coordinator as well as handling hitting, served as head coach at Chandler-Gilbert Community College in Arizona from 2001-07 where he compiled a 255-140 record.
In 2003, the Coyotes won the Region 1 title and was a qualifier to the Western District Playoffs as Wilson earned ABCA Region 1 Coach of the Year honors.
He was a two-time all-conference catcher at Arkansas (1985-86) and was a member of the 1985 Razorbacks' squad that played in the College World Series. During his tenure as team captain both seasons, Wilson batted .330 as a junior with 10 doubles and 38 RBI while hitting .275 with 11 doubles and 34 RBI in his senior season.
As a ninth-round selection by the Cleveland Indians in 1986, he played four seasons in the organization and later started his coaching career. He was the pitching coach and recruiting coordinator at South Mountain Community College (1996-99) and coached various scout teams. He also served as a part-time scout for the Arizona Diamondbacks from 1997-2001.
Wilson and another coach who will be named later this week replace former assistants Dave Lawn and Bill Mosiello. Lawn was named as head coach earlier this month at Servite High in Anaheim, Calif., while Mosiello resigned to pursue other interests.
