Head Coach: Eric Campbell, USA Baseball
Eric Campbell is USA Baseball’s General Manager, National Teams, working with the College National Team and Professional Team. Campbell joined the USA Baseball staff in January 2000 as the primary administrator to the Junior National Team (now 18U program) after serving as a volunteer administrator at two United State Olympic Committee (USOC) Olympic Festivals and an administrator and coach to various USA Baseball teams and events. After four years, he was promoted to the General Manager position.
In his 18 years at USA Baseball, Campbell has served as the primary or assistant team administrator for almost 40 national teams. USA Baseball’s Collegiate National Team won gold medals at the 2004, 2006 and 2008 FISU World Collegiate Championships, and he helped guide the 2008 U.S. Olympic Baseball Team to a bronze medal in Beijing. Campbell also served on the technical committee for the inaugural World Baseball Classic in 2006 and was the team leader for the 2009 squad.
Instructor: Jim Koerner, NCCU Head Coach
Coach Koerner has been at the helm of the Eagles since 2011 when he became the second head coach in NCCU’s modern-day baseball history. He arrived at NCCU after five seasons as an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator for the University at Buffalo. Coach Koerner was tasked with leading the team during its first year at the Division I level. The 19 victories were three more than the previous three years combined, and a surprising second place finish in the very tough Southern Division of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, NCCU sent a message that Eagles baseball would be a force to reckon with in the coming years.
Instructor: Eric Tyler, Baseball Rebellion

Eric was named a team co-captain prior to his senior year as well as being awarded First-Team All-American Conference honors. Eric graduated from East Carolina in 2017 with a bachelor’s degree in Recreation and Parks Management with a minor in Business Administration. Eric is a native of Landis, NC.
