Charlotte, N.C. – Charlotte head baseball coach Loren Hibbs has named former 49ers catcher Kris Rochelle to his coaching staff for the 2010 season. He will take over as hitting instructor and work with the catchers and infielders.
Rochelle had his pro playing career cut short, playing parts of three seasons of minor league baseball following his 2007 graduation and drafting by Detroit. He joins the Niners after two seasons with the Washington Wild Things and a season with the Oneonta Tigers.
"We are excited to have Kris back in our program," said Hibbs.
Loren Gibbs of Charlotte has announced that assistant Brandon Hall has been promoted to Associate Head Coach after serving the past seven seasons with the 49ers. In addition, he has been the recruiting coordinator for the past five seasons. “Over the past seven years, Brandon has developed into one of the top assistant coaches in this region,” said Hibbs. “He has displayed a tremendous work ethic, an incredible desire to improve and a loyalty to our program and this institution that is unmatched. He fits with our overall program philosophy and has been a major factor in our success in recent years. Brandon `gets it’ and I am really looking forward to continuing to work alongside him in the future.” Continue reading
