Furman head baseball coach Brett Harker announced the hiring of Kaleb Davis on July 22, 2016, as the Paladins' new pitching coach.
Davis comes to Furman following a three-year tenure as pitching coach/recruiting coordinator at Anderson (S.C.) University, his alma mater.
"I am very excited to add Kaleb Davis to our coaching staff," said Harker. "Kaleb is an up-and-coming baseball mind with a strong reputation for developing pitchers and recruiting top talent in the Southeast. His work ethic and unwavering character make him the perfect addition to our Furman Baseball family."
While at Anderson he helped the Trojans earn their first South Atlantic Conference (SAC) Tournament appearance and victory and coached Landon Beck, the school's first All-SAC pitcher and 25th round selection of the St. Louis Cardinals in 2014. Davis also recruited and signed All-SAC and Capital One Academic All-America catcher LJ Newman, as well as all-conference performers Garrett Bernardo and Brock Goodling — the latter of whom led the SAC and ranked in the Top 10 nationally with 12 saves this past spring.
Prior to returning to Anderson following the 2012 season, he served as pitching coach/recruiting coordinator at Point University for one year.
The Orangeburg, S.C., native, who underwent two major arm surgeries during his career with the Trojans, earned a Bachelor of Science degree in kinesiology in 2011.
He is married to the former Jamie Rusnak of Columbia, S.C.
