Jimmy Jackson is heading into his sixth season with the Dukes as pitching coach, and his second as associate head coach. He had previously served as assistant coach the last four years. Before heading to Harrisonburg, Jackson spent four seasons as the pitching coach and recruiting coordinator at Fordham, putting together some of the Atlantic 10’s best pitching staffs along the way and three years at Siena, the last two as the pitching coach and recruiting coordinator. Prior to Siena, Jackson spent three years as the varsity pitching coach at Archbishop Spalding High School in Severn, Maryland. In that time, Archbishop Spalding had 17 players who advanced to play in college, including 10 pitchers. Originally from Glen Burnie, Md., and a graduate of Old Mill High School, Jackson played two years ('04 & '05) of independent professional baseball in the Frontier and Atlantic Leagues after a standout collegiate career that ended in 2004 at Division II Shepherd University in West Virginia, where he earned his bachelor’s degree. He was a two-way player as an infielder and pitcher at Shepherd, earning First Team All-Conference, All-Region and Preseason All-American honors as a pitcher. He still holds multiple pitching records at Shepherd.
