SAN LUIS OBISPO BLUES BASEBALL NAMES NEW HEAD COACH
Jamie Clark Gets Nod for 2015 Campaign
San Luis Obispo Blues Baseball General Manager Adam Stowe has announced that, effective immediately, local resident and business owner, Jamie Clark, will assume the roll of Head Coach of the 2015 San Luis Obispo Blues.
Clark will be relinquishing his role as a Director on the board of the San Luis Obispo Blues non-profit foundation, a position he has held for the past 4 years, to take over as the SLO Blues skipper – filling the void created by the departure of Coach Chal Fanning, who left in early September to assume the role of Pitching Coach for Austin Peay State University. “We are extremely thankful to have had Coach Fanning for all these years. He will be greatly missed,” commented Stowe.
In addition to his duties as Head Coach, Jamie Clark will assume responsibility for coordinating all the Blues recruiting efforts. “I believe we were fortunate to find Jamie and feel that he is the best fit for our organization at this point,” said Stowe. “His four years of experience in NCAA Division I baseball, and serving on our Board of Directors will prove invaluable as we make this transition.”
“I feel extremely fortunate to have this opportunity and am whole-heartedly looking forward to this journey with a great organization,” said Clark. “Talking with coaches from across the country is proving to be a great experience. I look forward to being a positive influence in the players’ lives and their baseball careers. I’d like to thank my wife, Traci, first and foremost for her support throughout this process.”
