USA Baseball has named its coaching staff for the 2011 Collegiate National Team. Missouri head coach Tim Jamieson will head the staff. The Mizzou skipper will be joined by Dave Van Horn of Arkansas, Rob Walton of Oral Roberts and Kent State’s Scott Stricklin. All three assistants are head coaches at their respective schools.
“We are thrilled to announce Tim Jamieson as our 2011 manager,” said Eric Campbell, USA Baseball General Manager of National Teams. “His experience from 2005 — coaching players like David Price, Matt Wieters and Matt LaPorta — will serve him well, and teaming him with Dave Van Horn, Scott Stricklin and Rob Walton will provide our athletes with a unique opportunity to learn from some of the best college coaches in the game. Once again, the college coaching community has rallied around the Collegiate National Team program.”
Jamieson and Walton were assistants on for the 2005 CNT under Baylor head coach Steve Smith. This marks Walton’s third time on the USA staff. This will be Stricklin and Van Horn’s first time coaching for Team USA.
Jamieson is in his 17th season as head coach at Missouri. He has compiled a record of 544-382-2 in his time there.
