Denison head baseball coach Mike Deegan has announced the hiring of 2016 Denison graduate Brandon Morgan as an assistant baseball coach for the 2017 season.
A native of Boca Raton, Fla., Morgan recently wrapped up his four-year career with the Big Red as both a catcher and first baseman. He posted a .274 batting average with 12 extra-base hits, 37 RBIs and 22 runs scored. Morgan, who served as a captain his senior year, threw out 22 base runners in two-plus years as a catcher before suffering an injury his junior year.
In addition to his time on the diamond, Morgan also served as one of the lead broadcasters for the Denison Sports Network. Morgan provided live play-by-play and color commentary for football, volleyball and basketball at Denison.
Morgan graduated from Denison in 2016 with a degree in communication. In addition to his duties with the baseball program, he will also assist with the day-to-day operations in the Denison Sports Information Office.
