STU baseball coach Jorge Perez named assistant Athletic Director


St. Thomas University head baseball coach Jorge Perez is wearing another hat. Perez was recently promoted to assistant Athletic Director.

Perez will assist Athletic Director Laura Courtley-Tood in the operations of STU's Athletic Department and will continue as the head baseball coach.

“Perez's new leadership position is a testament to his hard work and dedication to building a competitive baseball program and overall mentorship to fellow coaches,” said Courtley-Todd. “His passion for excellence and community partnerships is a great asset to our university.”

STU has been a fixture in the postseason under Perez, reaching the Sun Conference tournament for 10 consecutive seasons, the opening round of the NAIA tournament for four consecutive seasons, and two of the program's six NAIA World Series appearances.

Perez led the Bobcats to a historic 2018 baseball season, as the team broke the program record with 56 wins (the previous record was 54 wins set in 1998); won the regular season Sun Conference Championship, swept the Hattiesburg Opening Round; and appeared in the NAIA World Series. During this season, STU featured three first team All-Americans, and a second team All-American.

When asked about his promotion Perez said, “I would like to thank President David Armstrong for this tremendous opportunity, and I look forward to helping our coaches as well as the student-athletes perform at a high level on and off the field.”
