FORT WORTH, Texas – TCU baseball head coach Jim Schlossnagle announced the addition of Chuck Jeroloman to the baseball staff. Jeroloman will assume the role of volunteer assistant coach. He joins the staff after spending the last seven seasons in professional baseball.
“We are excited to welcome Chuck, his wife Tara and his son, Owen, to the TCU family,” said Schlossnagle. “He comes highly recommended from people throughout the college and professional baseball world. I think he will be a great fit for our staff and his experience at the highest level of college baseball and his time as a professional player will, no doubt, benefit our players.”
“I am extremely excited to join the staff at TCU,” said Jeroloman. “This is one of the better programs in the country and it’s an honor to be part of the staff. I have heard people say nothing but good things about the program, staff and school. I have a lot of respect for coaches (Jim) Schlossnagle, (Randy) Mazey and (Tony) Vitello. I hope I can help add to what they have already started here at TCU. I want to play a part in getting this team back to Omaha.”
Jeroloman was a three-year starter at Auburn from 2002-04 before being drafted in the 21st round by the Boston Red Sox in 2004. As a Tiger, he played in 175 games and amassed 33 doubles, 12 home runs and drove in 91 runs.
He made his professional debut on July 7, 2004 with the Red Sox’s Low A affiliate, Lowell. During his time in the Red Sox organization, Jeroloman spent time in Advanced A and AAA. In his four seasons in the minor leagues, he hit 41 doubles, four triples and 10 home runs.
After being released by the Red Sox, Jeroloman signed with the Grays of the Canadian-American League in the summer of 2007. He spent the next three seasons playing independent ball. Jeroloman hit 65 doubles, eight triples and 40 home runs in 363 career games.
