Camp Coaching Staff

Danny Hall and his experienced staff will run each camp, with the rest of the staff being made up of current players as well as some of the finest college and high school coaches in the area. We take pride in providing high quality instruction and supervision.

Danny Hall / Head Coach

Having spent his entire coaching career involved with winning programs, Danny Hall's tenure at Georgia Tech has been his most successful, as he is the all-time winningest baseball coach in Yellow Jacket history with 854 victories at the school. He has led Tech to the NCAA Tournament on 18 occasions and guided the Yellow Jackets to the College World Series in 1994, 2002 and 2006, the only head coach in the program's storied history to reach the promised land of Omaha.

A winner in every sense of the word, Hall has been coaching college baseball for 36 years (an both as assistant and head coach) and has never been associated with a program under .500 for a season. He has been part of 1,499 victories and seven trips to the College World Series.

Since Hall's arrival at Georgia Tech in 1994, a staggering 106 Yellow Jackets have been selected in the Major League Baseball Draft a total of 120 times -- that includes a school-record 10 draft picks in 2005 and 2007 and a record five top-10 round picks in 2013. Thirteen of his student-athletes have been selected in either the first or supplemental round, while he has coached 52 players that have been taken in the first 10 rounds of the MLB draft. Out of high school, 47 have been drafted, but chose instead to play for Hall.

Jason Howell / Assistant Coach

Jason Howell was introduced on the Georgia Tech staff in July, 2012, joining the Yellow Jackets as the pitching coach following a successful five-year run in a similar position at UNC Wilmington.

The highly-regarded Howell who played and coached at the University of North Carolina and was a four-year pitcher in the pros, developed one of the Colonial Athletic Association's leading staffs at UNCW. The Seahawks reached the NCAA Regionals in 2012 for the first time since 2008.

In his first season on the Flats, he guided senior Buck Farmer to first-team All-ACC honors as the senior righty went 9-5 with a 2.78 ERA. Farmer, who was second in the ACC with 122 strikeouts, was drafted in the fifth round by the Detroit Tigers. Sophomore Josh Heddinger also made great strides under Howell's leadership and would record one of the greatest postseason pitching performances in Tech history with his complete-game, two-hit shutout of No. 2 Vanderbilt in the NCAA Nashville Regional.

James Ramsey / Assistant Coach

Former ACC Player of the Year, All-American and MLB first-rounder James Ramsey was announced as the assistant baseball coach/hitting at Georgia Tech on Feb. 7, 2019.

Ramsey joins preseason 17th-ranked Georgia Tech after spending a year with his alma mater on the Florida State baseball coaching staff as an assistant.

“I’ve known James Ramsey and his family for a long time,” head coach Danny Hall said. “He went to Wesleyan and my kids went to Wesleyan; I got to sit in the other dugout and watch him play for Florida State and he was a great player there; he was a first-round pick and went on to pro baseball. He’s done everything that our players are trying to do.”

Dan Jaffe / Volunteer Assistant Coach

Jaffe joins the preseason No. 17 Jackets after more than six years on the scouting trail and as an elite catching instructor across the country.

“I’m very excited to have Dan Jaffe here on our staff,” Hall said. “One of the things I’ve always prided ourselves on here at Georgia Tech is we’ve always had somebody on our staff who has caught and can coach catchers. The timing of this, trying to find the best catching guy in December and January, is not easy. So to get a guy who has a lot of knowledge on catching, that has a lot of energy and is really excited about being here was a best-case scenario for us. We look forward to getting him in here to work with our catchers.”

Prior to The Flats, Jaffe worked as an associate scout for the San Diego Padres, working in the Las Vegas/Henderson area. He also evaluated top collegiate players in the Cape Cod League, where he worked with the Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox as the catching coach, leading the instruction of catchers from across the country and creating all scouting reports.

Nick Scherer / Dir. of Opperations

Nick Scherer is in his sixth year as the director of baseball operations for the Georgia Tech program after playing four years for the Yellow Jackets and head coach Danny Hall from 2004-07. In his current role, Scherer is responsible for coordinating the Yellow Jackets' travel plans, equipment management and clubhouse operations in addition to assisting in alumni relations and marketing for the Georgia Tech baseball team. Scherer also serves as the director of Danny Hall Baseball Camps.

A catcher that provided depth behind the plate during his tenure, Scherer was a leader in the locker room and served as the primary catcher for Tech starter Eddie Burns in 2007. Scherer played in 47 games from 2005-07 after receiving a redshirt in 2004. He was a product of the highly-touted East Cobb Baseball program and a member of the East Cobb Yankees summer team that captured the Connie Mack World Series titles in 2001 and 2003.

Scherer serves as an assistant coach for the East Cobb Yankees and helped lead the team to a runner-up finish in 2007 and a Championship in the 2008 Connie Mack World Series. He worked with the Yankees' hitters and catchers and also served as the catching coach for the East Cobb Stallions' 12-13 team in 2007.
