LSU has announced that pitching coach Alan Dunn has been promoted to associate head coach and former Tiger pitcher Nate Fury has been named coordinator of baseball operations. Per

“I am proud to announce a new title for the man who I consider to be the very best pitching coach in all of baseball and a guy I wouldn’t trade for anyone,” Mainieri said. “Besides being the pitching coach, Alan Dunn will now be referred to as the Associate Head Coach for the LSU Baseball program. This is a title that best describes his value to our team as my right-hand man. As pitching coach of the team, he basically coaches half of the team on a daily basis and his influence on their performance cannot be overstated.

“It will be great to have Nate back with the LSU baseball program,” Mainieri said. “He once contributed in a big way as a vital relief pitcher on a College World Series team. He then pursued his dream of playing professional baseball and now will make significant contributions to our program once again, albeit in a different way. I know Nate loves the LSU baseball program and would do anything to serve it. He will handle a multitude of tasks and will represent the program in a first-class way.”
LSU begins practice on January 27 and opens the 2017 season on Friday, February 17, against Air Force at Alex Box Stadium, Skip Bertman Field.
