Turmail ST. LOUIS - Former Saint Louis University baseball player Scott Turmail has been named a volunteer assistant coach, as announced today by Billiken head coach Darin Hendrickson.

"We are pleased to have Scott rejoin us as part of our coaching staff," Hendrickson said. "He was a tremendous competitor, having played for us in our first two years here. His teams laid the groundwork for building us to where we are today. He knows the SLU community well after serving as the head coach at Forest Park Community College. He gained a great deal of experience there and will bring great energy and work ethic to our team."

"I’m excited to be a part of Billiken baseball once again," Turmail said. "Coach Hendrickson and his staff have worked very hard over the past three seasons, which has directly led to the program’s success. I am looking forward to the opportunity to continue to help move the program in the right direction and defending last year’s Atlantic 10 Championship."

A pitcher, Turmail spent a season at Long Beach State and Forest Park CC before joining the Billikens beginning with the 2008 season. That year, he led the Billikens’ pitching staff with a 7-6 record and a 3.12 ERA. He also led the A-10 in innings pitched and complete games. During his senior season, he again led the pitching staff in starts (13) and complete games (two) en route to a 5-4 record with a 4.32 ERA.

Following his graduation, Turmail pitched briefly for the River City Rascals before coaching one season at Forest Park Community College. He is a native of Florissant, Mo., and prepped at Hazelwood Central High School. Turmail replaces Danny Jackson, who earned a full-time position at SIU Edwardsville.
