Assistant Coach East Carolina University
Bill Jarman will enter his second full season on the East Carolina baseball staff as the pitching coach, a position that he accepted on June 1, 2006.
In his first year at the helm of the pitching staff, Jarman helped the Pirates rank second in saves (15) in league play and third in strikeouts (432) and opposing batting average (.266). The 2007 squad also ranked among the Conference USA leaders in ERA (4.01), innings pitched (559.1), runners picked off (11) and wins (40).
A pair of Pirate flame throwers earned post-season honors under Jarman's direction. Former reliever Shane Mathews, who was selected by the Baltimore Orioles in the 2007 Major League Baseball Amateur Draft, was named to the All C-USA Tournament team after helping the Pirates to a second place finish. On the season he ranked fifth nationally in saves with 15 and lead C-USA in appearances (39), games finished (37) and games in relief (39).
