Jerry Meyers has been named Assistant Director of Athletics Development, University of South Carolina Athletics Director Ray Tanner announced today.

Meyers spent 16 years on the Gamecock baseball coaching staff, most recently as pitching coach. On Nov. 3, 2017, he took a medical leave of absence.

“I appreciate Coach Tanner giving me this opportunity,” said Meyers. “My family and I love this University and Columbia is our home. I always have had the aspirations to get into athletics administration at some point in my career. I am grateful and am excited to start this next chapter and continue to be a part of the Gamecock family.”

Meyers will take part in a variety of fundraising duties with one of his major roles working closely with former Gamecock student-athletes.

“I think Jerry will do a fantastic job for Gamecock Athletics,” said Tanner. “Jerry brings a unique perspective to our development areas as a former coach. Jerry will help us build a bridge between the Letterman’s Association, the athletics department and our former student-athletes. He is a great recruiter and as a head coach at Old Dominion (2004-10), he had to play a major role in fundraising for his program and the department.”

Meyers also had assistant coaching stints at Old Dominion, UNC Wilmington, Gulf Coast Community College and served as a graduate assistant at South Alabama.

Meyers received a bachelor of business administration degree in management from Iowa State and the master of education in physical education from South Alabama in 1989 with an emphasis in exercise and movement technology. Meyers and his wife, Chris, have two daughters, Jaye Riley born July 31, 1999, and Audrey Reese, born December 31, 2001.
