Jeff Kilgore has been named head baseball coach at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College, and will also serve as an academic support counselor.
Kilgore is no stranger to the team, serving as interim coach of the Stallions last season after spending two years as an assistant coach.
He led the Stallions on a comeback season in 2013, winning 14 conference games after the team won only six in 2012.
He says losing the interim tag not only solidifies him with his current players, but also boosts the confidence of recruits.
"You have kids who, they see interim, and they wonder if you're going to be here next year, and those questions pop in their head," Kilgore says. "So to have it removed is really nice for recruiting purposes especially."
In his role as an academic support counselor, Kilgore will assist and guide students through all phases of the academic process from acceptance through graduation.
