GREENVILLE — Allen Osborne, the latest addition to the East Carolina baseball staff, is destined for multiple roles in the coaching management chart of Randy Mazey, the Pirates' new head coach.

Mazey announced the addition of Osborne as an assistant coach on Thursday. Osborne will serve as the team`s recruiting coordinator and work with hitters, catchers, and baserunners.

"We`re very excited about having Allen join our staff," said Mazey. "He is an energetic and knowledgeable coach that shares our vision of taking this program to Omaha. He is also a very aggressive coach and recruiter that will only make our players and program stronger."

Osborne spent the past three years as an assistant coach at the University of Georgia, serving as one of the Bulldogs` hitting instructors, catching instructor, equipment manager and on-campus recruiting coordinator.
