Assistant Coach

Bruce Johnson, who graduated from Western Carolina University in 2009, is set to return for his fourth season on staff in Cullowhee, joining as a full-time member after two seasons as the Volunteer Assistant Coach.

Bobby Moranda

 

Head Coach

Bobby Moranda was officially introduced as the 10th different head baseball coach at Western Carolina on July 19, 2007. The former Georgia Tech associate head coach brings over 26 years of coaching experience - 18 of which comes from schools in the Atlantic Coast Conference - to WCU.

"Bobby Moranda is one of the most dynamic coaches in college baseball. He has been an important part of successful programs at such schools as Virginia, Wake Forest and Georgia Tech," said Western Athletics Director Chip Smith. "His career includes numerous conference championships and appearances in the NCAA post-season play, including two College World Series berths. We are very excited that Bobby, his wife Pamela and their family will be part of Catamount Athletics and Western Carolina University."

In six seasons at Western Carolina, Moranda has already posted signature victories over fourth-ranked Georgia Tech in the Yellow Jackets first-ever trip to Cullowhee, as well as over 24th-ranked Southern California (USC) on the program's first-ever trip to California. WCU has also secured road wins over nationally-ranked Clemson and twice at Tennessee -- sweeping the Tigers in the 2012 regular season marking the first single-season sweep in Catamount history.
