EUNICE, La. - Former Georgia College & State University baseball graduate assistant coach Josh McDonald was recently named an assistant coach at Louisiana State University-Eunice. McDonald spent two seasons in a Bobcat uniform from 2007-08.
In 2008, the Bengals won their second NJCAA Division II World Series title in the last three years, finishing a 54-12 season on the highest possible note.
"We are excited to have Josh be a part of our program, said LSUE head coach Jeff Willis. "He comes from a very successful program at Georgia College and State University and should help us tremendously."
During his two seasons, McDonald served as first base coach and assisted with defensive and offensive instruction. The team was 79-40 over his two seasons, including a Peach Belt Conference (PBC) Regular-Season title in 2007.
"At Georgia College I was involved in all aspects of a successful baseball program," said McDonald. "Those experiences will help as I continue my coaching career."
McDonald completed his undergraduate degree from Georgia Southwestern State University in Americus, Ga. in 2006. He was a four year letterman for the Hurricanes, playing first base and was a three-time All-Academic selection. He graduated with a degree in health and physical education with a 3.5 grade point average.
